SharePoint 2019 Search returning irrelevant results

Copper Contributor

Hi 

 

We need assistance with our SharePoint Server 2019 results, when searching for an Item using a unique column value, the results for our query returns the item with the metadata value search as well as other items that do not match the query. On our previous 2013 environment we were only recieving the correct item, is there a bug with the SharePoint 2019 search or do we need additional search configuration to ensure that only the Item the matches the query is returned,

Hello @Tshepo_Kakudi 

 

you wanna "only" an exactly matching from query to results. Here are an great article for you: https://www.mehr365.com/volltreffer-exakte-uebereinstimmung-in-der-suche/

 

You need to use this kind of query: 

 

{SearchBoxQuery} Path:“{SitePath}/Lists/ProductionPhone“ AND contentclass:STS_ListItem* AND (Title:{SearchTerms})

 

Best. Dave
