The MINIMUM TERM LENGTH setting specifies the minimum length, in characters, for terms inserted in the index or searched for in a full text query. MINIMUM TERM LENGTH is not relevant for NGRAM text indexes.
MINIMUM TERM LENGTH has special implications on prefix searching.
The value of MINIMUM TERM LENGTH must be greater than 0. If you set it higher than MAXIMUM TERM LENGTH, then MAXIMUM TERM LENGTH is automatically adjusted to be equal to MINIMUM TERM LENGTH.
If not defined, the default for MINIMUM TERM LENGTH is taken from the setting in the default text configuration object, which is typically 1.
The following table explains the impact that the value of MINIMUM TERM LENGTH has on text indexing and on how query strings are handled:
