We are currently experiencing an issue with a search in a document library. When a metadata filter is used with a search term it fails to retrieve all items.
A few key points:
Columns in the view are indexed.
The number of documents in the list does exceed the view threshold.
The list view is expanded to not include folders.
We understand points 2 & 3 can be problematic.
However when we search in the view with the metadata alias and the search term it retrieves the required items. Why does not retrieve the expected results when the metadata filter on a column is used as well? Note - we are not getting the view limit exceeded error message..
