Search initiatives

In the coming months, we will improve search performance and result relevance as part of our new search initiatives - watch this space! Below is a small first step towards improving the search experience in the Find bar.

Find bar search after 3 input characters

You can customize the number of input characters that initiate the search using the minimumSearchLength property.
For more on this topic

See ADMINCTR-226 Initiate Find bar search after an optional number of input characters

H2 database updated

For this H2 update, you must check whether additional steps are required when updating.

In particular, the update will prevent Magnolia from starting if an instance has been using an H2 database created with a previous 1.4.x version.

In most development environments, deleting the database and reinstalling it again should be the quickest option. Otherwise, you can follow the H2 upgrade procedure explained here.

For more on this topic

See BUILD-960 Update h2 db to version 2.1.214
Or our H2 database known issues section.
