How do you search an attribute of type textarea?

I chose to create an attribute of type textarea because the text could be long.  

What is the IQL to perform a "contains" search on this attribute?

Queries like the following do not work:

  • Notes LIKE "TEST"
  • Notes IS EMPTY
  • Notes IS NOT EMPTY

1 answer

LIKE & NOT LIKE should work. You can also use startsWith & endsWith

You'll also want to make sure those attributes are indexed for quicker results, otherwise the search can be slower.
