Can I search the URL fields in the indexed documents?

Yes, you can search URL fields, however, it is a bit different than searching content and other fields.

The parent URL between http:// and / would be taken as a single term. 

You can also give the full URL with special characters by enclosing the URL within double quotes:


Sub-paths can also be searched directly. For example, if you need to find whether the word "searching" is available in the subpaths


the query should be:


You can also combine queries using logical operators along with URL parameters as:

collection AND url: searching
