Manage Stopwords

Stopwords enables you to create a list of words to be ignored in search queries. For instance, if searchunify is a stopword then a query searchunify search client is treated as search client. The first term, searchunify, is ignored. Stopwords offer several advantages.

For one, each keyword in a query matters. install searchunify in a salesforce org brings different results from install searchunify salesforce org. Through Stopwords, the default search behavior can be changed so that the presence or absence of grammatical particle, keyword or phrase has no impact on results; and your customers or employees have a consistent search experience for similar queries.

It is a common practice to exclude common grammatical particles . You can expand the list with your organization-specific keywords. For instance, using "secretProductName" as a stopword adds a layer of security on top of search client access control.
