FAST Query returns less results RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configured tokenization on the field author.

    When I perform a simple search in FAST ESP, I do not get the results that I expected.

    Go to FAST ESP.
    Perform a simple search.
    Search for a non existing item like: -xka (to get all the documents in the collection).

    In the navigator pane go to author and click on an author with diaeresis (umlaut).
     In my example I click on Aüthor (there are 139 items)
    After clicking on Aüthor I expect to get 139 items.

    But after clicking on Aüthor I only get 7 items.
    Fast is executing an equals() operator instead of a query without the equals operator.

    Why is FAST after configuring tokenization on the field author returning less records than when there was no tokenization?

    Please help?

  • With  -xka - u hit a jackpot, it is undocumented command, when u search with which start with - it returns all the results from the  FAST Search UI, but it will not work in QR server UI without putting some more documents.

    Search by some valid words and tell us , if then also by clicking author nav u get the same behaviour.
