Most of the time, a simple search finds relevant results. The following search operators help you to refine your search.
Add double quotation marks (" ") around specific phrases to focus your search on the exact phrase. A phrase search can greatly reduce the number of results. For example, enter:
The results contain pages that have the exact phrase hybrid cloud in them.
Adding double quotation marks around your search words also prevents spelling corrections.
Include a minus sign (-) at the beginning of a term to exclude all the pages with that term. Do not leave any space between the minus sign and the term, but leave a space between search terms. For example, enter:
The results contain pages with POWER8 but not the word virtualization.
The IBM search function automatically searches for synonyms of many terms. Include a plus sign (+) at the beginning of a term to require that the results match the term precisely. Do not leave any space between the plus sign and the term, but leave a space between search terms. For example, if you want to search for z/OS workshop and not z/OS training, enter:
The results contain pages with z/OS and workshop, and synonyms for workshop are not used.
Use the OR operator between terms to indicate that you want the results to contain either one of several terms. You must type OR in capital letters. For example, enter:
storwize v7000 OR v3500
The results contain pages that have storwize v7000 or storwize v3500.
