    What terms are included in the 'Did You Mean' index?

    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: All versions
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, Total Care


    The 'Did you mean' index is based on local data (everything that is loaded into Primo via a pipe); it contains all terms that occur in the index more than 5 times in the fields 'title' or 'creator'.

    Activate Deep Search Did You Mean:

    > If activated this option in Search Configuration - it attempts to use the remote did you mean first, and if found none – uses local did you mean.
    > If non-activate – uses local did you mean.

    For more information about this parameter, see the Search Engine Configurations.

    Since Primo Central data comes from an external system it is not included the the local Did You Mean index.
