With Oracle Text Search (OTS) used in Content Server, a custom metadata field is created which has option list. When this option list contains a two word option with a space, it adds quotation marks while doing a search on the field.

This variable should not automatically convert drop-down values to queries that do not work and needs to be ignored while searching.
