      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Text separated by any single non-numeric, non-alphabetic character should be indexed a second time using those characters as separators. This will permit much more flexible and realistic search results, since users mentally separate out characters such as my.project and important_document_name.

      A suitable programming-related use case is when indexing methods. To index

      dbo.tblTransactions(SomeDataType var)

      should produce

      dbo.tblTransactions(SomeDataType
      dbl
      tblTransactions
      SomeDataType
      var)
      var
