Search in fields

Search specific fields rather than the default. Terms, phrases, etc. can all be preceded by a field. If not the default field TEXT is used.
field:term
field:"phrase"
=field:exact
~field:expand

Fields fall into three types: property fields, special fields, and fields for data types.

Property fields evaluate the search term against a particular property, special fields are described in the following table, and data type fields evaluate the search term against all properties of the given type.
