Search Behavior:

oFuzziness: Maximum edit distance allowed for matching. This fuzziness behavior attempts various combinations of the original search by changing, removing, inserting, or transposing characters. The options are No edits allowed, One edit allowed, or Two edits allowed (default).
For example, allowing two edits (edit distance=2) for a search input of "sand" could result in searches such as "band", "san", "and", "salt", etc.

oSearch Assistance: Options include Simple and Combined.

oSearch Operator: The implied relation between two or more search terms. Can be AND or OR. If the operator is AND, then all terms must match for the returned result. If the operator is OR, then at least one of the search terms must be true for the returned result.

oExact Assistance: Uses your exact text, from beginning to end, whether your search text is multiple words or just one word.

oFuzzy Assistance: Returns results that are likely to be relevant to a search argument even when the argument does not exactly correspond to the desired information.

oLike Assistance: Adds a wildcard (*) before and after your search text. For example, searching for "bat" is equivalent  searching for *bat*. The results could be words such as "acrobat" or "batting".

oWildcard Assistance: Adds a wildcard (*) after your search text. For example, searching for "bat" is equivalent  searching for bat*. The results could be words such as "batting" or "bath".

Search Result Formatting:

oReturn Geometry: If true, the result set includes the geometry associated with each result. The default is false.

oReturn Highlighting: If true, the result set includes information what part of the result item matched the search value.
