Boosting URL?

I’d like to boost a search result if the query is found in the URL field of the document. I can’t seem to get that to work. Fess doesn’t seem to search the URL field at all.

Here’s what I have in


In fact, after changing, I’m not sure Fess is indexing documents after a manual request and there’s nothing in the error logs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

url field is searchable one by default.
query.boost.* other than title/content does not exist.
To boost url field, it’s like url:"…"^10.
See Boost Search.

Ah, okay. Thanks. Should I be querying Elastic directly or does Fess’ REST API support this somehow? I have tried this and it doesn’t seem to work:


The default search query does not appear to pick up values in URL in the latest release.

Fess supports it, and url field is not analyzed field.
Use a wildcard query, such as

$ curl "*%22"

Worked! Thank you so much for your help.
