How can I search for occurrences of an exact phrase in one or more documents?
I have tried enclosing the search phrase in quotation marks, using the Required Words field of the Advanced Search, but this does not limit the search results to those documents in which the exact phrase appears.
Works for me on latest Nuxeo 5.7 snapshot with embedded H2 database: I create a Note document with text The small octopus really has ecclesiastical tendencies. Going to advanced search and entering in Required words the text (with quotes included) “ecclesiastical tendencies” returns my document, but “ecclesiastical octopus” does not.
You haven't specified what Nuxeo version and database are you using.
