Phased rollout


This documentation supports the 21.05 version of BMC Service Request Management. To view an earlier version, select the version from the Product version menu.

Configuring service request query exclusions

You can configure the Request Entry console to ignore frequently used words such as and, the, where. The console can also be configured to exclude specific words from the search. 

Query exclusions are applied based on an exact match by locale. By default, BMC Service Request Management installs a list of U.S. English words (en_US locale) to exclude. You can also create a localized exclusion list.

If full text search (FTS) is enabled, the Request Entry console will use the FTS Ignore Words list to exclude words from end user searches. If FTS is not enabled, the Request Entry Console will use the BMC Service Request Management Exclusion List to exclude words.

For more information about configuring the FTS Ignore Words, see  Configuring the Ignore Words List for FTS indexing Open link .
