DocHub Search Help

This topic provides basic and advanced searching options for the DocHub website. This information does not apply to the Sumo Logic product. 

Basic Search

To search DocHub, enter a keyword in the search box and press Enter.

Example: AWS

Search terms are case-insensitive, so AWS is the same as aws or Aws.

To search for a phrase, enclose it in double quotes.

Example: AWS Data

This will locate pages that contain the phrase “AWS Data”—both words, with no other words in between.

Searching for multiple words separated by spaces, implies OR.

Example: cdn s3 aws

This will be interpreted as cdn OR s3 OR aws—search results will contain one or more of these words.

To find pages that contain all three terms, use AND.

Example: cdn AND s3 AND aws

To find topics that do not contain a particular word, use NOT or the “-“ character.

Example: NOT aws

Search terms can be grouped using parentheses.

Example: (cdn OR s3) AND NOT aws

This will find pages that contain CDN or S3, but that do not contain AWS.

Special Characters

When your search query includes any of these special characters: + - ( ) [ ] { } ^ “ ~ * : or \, escape the character with a backslash (‘\’). For example, to search for pages containing “(RoR)”:

Example: \(RoR\)

In this case, “\(“ matches “(“ and “\)” matches “)”. To search for a backslash ('\'), use two backslashes, like this: "\\." For this purpose, “&&” and “||” are also considered special characters—to search for "||," use a single backslash, like this: "\||."

Without the backslash, the following parentheses would be interpreted as a group.

Example: (RoR)

This will find pages containing “RoR” with or without the parentheses.

Advanced Search Options

Topics have content, a title, a brief description, and associated tags. To limit a search to one of these sections, use content:, title:, description:, or tags: before your search terms.

Example: title:aws

This will find pages with “AWS” in the title.

Search results are ordered by relevance. If one term is more important, use the ^ character to indicate it.

Example: CDN AWS^

This will find pages that contain CDN or AWS, but it will rank pages that contain AWS more highly and will list them first.

For more control, you can specify a relative value after the ^ character.

Example: CDN^10 AWS^2

This will rank pages containing CDN as five times more relevant than pages containing AWS.
