Search for fuzzy matching

Alfresco supports fuzzy searches based on the Lucene default Levenshtein Distance.

To do a fuzzy search use the tilde (~) symbol at the end of a single word term with a parameter between 0 and 1 to specify the required similarity. Use a value closer to 1 for higher similarity.

For example, to search for a term similar in spelling to roam use the fuzzy search:


This search will find terms like foam, roaming, and roams.
