E-ES: Searching for Content that has a Hyphen/Minus Sign/Dash in ElasticSearch Does Not Give the Expacted Results (Doc ID 2223175.1)

Last updated on MARCH 09, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

We have an ELM 9.2 application, Peopletools 8.55.12 and ElasticSearch using the the 2.3.2_1 zip file.
We use the format of ELM-XXX for our Course codes. With SES we were able to search for a specific course, (ELM-608 for example). But with ElasticSearch it appears that the hyphen seems to be treated as some sort of wildcard.
