Using Wildcards in Queries

When you use a wildcard syntax in the search box, Coveo Cloud expands keywords containing a wildcard character to the possible matching keywords to broaden the query.

Coveo supports wildcard characters * and ?.

Coveo Cloud Search API - January 2016  JavaScript Search page developers can enable or disable wildcard match (enableWildcards option) independently from the Coveo query syntax (enableQuerySyntax option) in the Querybox component (see QueryBox Component and Coveo Component Querybox).

See also how you can leverage wildcard characters in advanced field queries (see Advanced Field Queries). If you have querying issues, see Troubleshooting Querying Issues for troubleshooting guidelines.
