Configuring search behavior

Updated on January 19, 2022

You must configure Pega Knowledge to create and maintain the search indexes before the search features are active. When you enter a keyword in the search bar, Pega Knowledge looks for the related strings in the article title, abstract, article body, and tags. Pega Knowledge also provides Fuzzy search capability for misspelled search strings to enhance the expected search results. For more information, see Configuring fuzzy search in Configuring Elasticsearch.
