Fuzzy search

Recommendations [hide]

This topic describes the "fuzzy search" feature in Episerver Search & Navigation (formerly Episerver Find). A fuzzy search query returns documents that contain terms similar to the search term.

How it works

Fuzzy search locates content likely to be relevant to a search argument even if that content does not match the search query exactly. Fuzzy search uses a fuzzy matching program, which returns results with likely relevance.

Episerver Search & Navigation's "Fuzzy search" replicates the "fuzzy query" in Elasticsearch.

  .Filter(x => x.Author.MatchFuzzy("henric", 0.8))
