Checking a Service Queries with error - ABO

Back Office User Guide

Reference Guide

In the Queries display of a selected service in the selected time period, the 50 queries with error table shows the 50 most frequent queries which give error. This helps troubleshooting the search service:

  • The first column is the ranking of the queries delivering empty replies in decreasing order.
  • The Error column shows the given error.
  • The Query column lists the full AFS queries syntax.
  • The Hits column gives the number of times when users made the queries.

The table can be browsed with the scroll bar.

Queries with no answer and failing replies are different things. The 50 queries with no answer table helps identify empty replies generated by the Query Engine. When AFS-QE fails to generate any reply, it is advised to check the AFS-BO Dashboard status, as described in Search Front Service Details.

A click on a query expression makes it possible to launch it in a browser.

To see the entire error, a mouse rollover display a pop-up.


For more information about a query delivering error, a mouse rollover displays a summary pop-up with information about the parameters used and their values.

For more information about AFS queries syntax, see the Search section in AFS v7.11 Integration Guide.
