My chief question: does Salesforce's SOSL/Parameterized search accept
* wildcard searches?
Related q: Does URL encoding a url with search string parameters including asterisk and
+ characters compromise those characters, particularly the asterisks?
I generate a search string by retrieving strings in one dataset and then attempt to match them to the
Name field on an Sobject by concatenating them into one string variable.
A generated string example before it's passed into the parameterized url looks like this:
Would the URL encoding encode the string
*+* like this
%2A%2B%2A% and negate the wildcard significance of the asterisk?
EDIT: According to this SFDC Search Documentation I am using the URL/parameterized search, but I could actually POST a JSON and get a response back. Would this enable me to use the wild card
* or does parameterized search accept those as well?
