I found this thread to be useful when pointing out that adding quotes to an API search will make that search term "exact"
I've found that this works very well with a keyword search but found that it didn't hold up when applied to exact matches on Metadata Fields. It appears as though metadata fields still do partial matching even with escaped double quotes being used.
Is there a different technique when searching on a Metadata field? I know that you can build an mdfilter and for some types (like numbers) it does take "lt" and "gt." Maybe theres a different thing that is used in an mdfilter to get an exact match on a string? Thanks for your time and your help.
