Search Improvements

  • The default search operator for a multi-term search has changed from OR to AND.
  • Filtered Search Results. Alfresco search interface now uses filters (also known as facets) More filter types are possible, and configuration screens for this feature will be coming in a future 5.0 release. Custom facet controls can be created using the flexible Aikau framework.
  • Inline actions – the user may now perform useful work within the search results page itself.
  • URL fragment history – the user entered search terms, selected search filters and sort settings are made part of the URL history.
