2368694 - Power search returning no results because the search term is an oracle stopword

Symptom

Example, search for users named Will by first name in power search bar; no results are returned even through many users named Will exist in application.

Cause

This type of search reserves certain query related words known as 'stopwords.' 'Will' is one of these words. That's why these users are not appearing in the search.

Resolution

While not a defect this is far from common knowledge and development have put this on the roadmap to address in a future release; the idea being to have the application check the stopwords before the search begins and alert the user that the particular word they are using is not accepted in its current form.

A list of the most common stopwords is attached to this KBA.
