On Premises

Use the and operator to narrow your search. When you use and in the search criteria, only objects with all terms entered return. For example, if you enter the search criteria Author and Manage and Publish, only objects containing all of these words return in a search.

Tip Use the plus (+) symbol in place of And.

"And" - Venn Diagram

Adding more terms to the search criteria separated by the operator "and" makes the search more restrictive, and returns fewer results.

Note: The default search behavior assumes that when you enter a series of words, you are only interested in objects that contain all the words you specify. Using the previous example, you can also enter the search criteria as Author Manage Publish. The search engine assumes the and operator, so you generally don't need to use it.
