  • Hi Jithendar,

    The above search term will not work in share point 2013 search. Because KQL queries don't support suffix matching.

    When you use words in a free-text KQL query, Search in SharePoint returns results based on exact matches of your words with the terms stored in the full-text index. You can use just a part of a word, from the beginning of the word, by using the wildcard operator (*) to enable prefix matching. In prefix matching, Search in SharePoint matches results with terms that contain the word followed by zero or more characters.

    eg:Federated Searc* 

    For more detailed information, refer to the following article:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/keyword-query-language-kql-syntax-reference

    Best Regards,

    Lisa Chen

  • When use letters in a free-text SQL query, Search in SharePoint come back as results based on exact matches of your letters with the terms stored in the full-text index. You use just a part of a letters, from the beginning of the letter, by using the wildcard operator (*) to enable prefix matching. In prefix matching, Search in SharePoint matches results with terms that contain the letters followed by zero or more characters.
