SharePoint Search Queries Explained - The Series

Want the book? Go get it!

First, I’d like to thank Maximilan Melcher for the inspiration to the simple title of this blog series, and the episode numbering.

For the past year I've written quite a lot of search queries and search query rewrites via query rules in SharePoint 2013 both in customer projects and for presentations. Although there is documentation out there for the gumshoes out there, I though I’d digest it all into a series of blog posts.

Below you will find a list of topics I’m planning to cover. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to drop me a note.

  1. Hi Mikael,

    Thanks for those series, very helpful!!!

    Do you think it's possible to achieve subqueries with keywordquery? (something like this: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190963(v=sql.105).aspx)

    Thanks,
    Bastien

    1. Not possible, as IN in sql is sort of a JOIN which you cannot do in KQL.

    1. Hi, it is doable but I avoid it as it's too complicated. I suggest creating small searchconfig.xml files which you export from test sites, then import them where needed. Easier to work with imo.
