Basic text search

In a basic text search (no operators) the search engine looks for a match to your search terms in the following places:

  • Title of project, dataset, or query

  • Description of project or dataset

  • Summary of project or dataset

  • Tags

  • Insights

  • User and organization names

If you have a search string with more than one word in it you can structure your search so that the search engine looks for an exact match of the string or looks for individual words and searches for items that have all of the words in any order. To search for the entire string, put double quotes around that string (" "). The search engine then looks for instances of that exact string and only returns items which contain it. Spaces, hyphens or underscores in search strings are not tokenized if there are double-quotes around the string. Searches with multiple words in them that are not bounded by double quotes return items that have all of the words in the search string. Here are some examples:
