Search suggestions will appear to all users regardless of whether or not a user has permission to any asset that match those search terms. Disabling this property will prevent non-permitted users from viewing any asset names or search terms otherwise unavailable to them while performing a search. 

Ignore characters

Any change to this property requires a full  search reindex in addition to a restart in addition to the restart of the application.

The following property allows you to configure any characters or character sets to be ignored during keyword and  advanced searches. For example, if - were an ignored character, a search for hello dolly and hello-dolly would produce the same results across all search types. Note that this means ignored characters also apply to exact searches performed via  advanced search and may produce unexpected results.
