Space in multi valued results RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a multi valued property which is managed metadata. I have the "mergecrawledproperties" is set to true. the problem is when I get the result, the separator is a white space which make it is hard to read. belo is a sample of my data.

    Values selected in the list




    What I would like to see while searching

    Red, Blue, Yellow

    What I actually get

    Red Blue Yellow

    Return xml from FAST

    <Color>Red Blue Yellow</Color>

    The problem come when you have a value with a space in between. something like "Light Red". How can I get FAST to send a separator in the string.

  • All content that is indexed, as well as the queries that are sent into the index are tokenized, i.e. stripped from characters such as punctuation, hyphens, etc. Basically everything that is not alpha-numerical is removed. This is to ensure good recall of your search queries.
    From the FAST legacy product, indexing these special characters was done by configuring tokenization.xml file to skip them. With FS14, you may have to look at some  kind of customization (may be through pipeline extensibility).
