I am using REST call to query a result source and fetching the results based on the search word. But it tries to absolute match the results. What I mean is if I search for Test. it gets me results which has Test as a keyword.

But if i search for "Test for results" does not get me results for "Test". How can we do this search.


For "OR" searches you need the OData $filter parameter

See chapter: 4.5 Filter System Query Option ($filter)

of http://www.odata.org/documentation/odata-version-2-0/uri-conventions/

SharePoint endpoint and Search documentation

Search has different syntax
