Term-specific queries

Allowing the de-selection of descendant terms in ontology filters


includeDescendantTerms selectorSo far (and still as standard), any selected filter will also include matches on its child terms; i.e. "NCIT:C3052 - Digestive System Neoplasm" will include results from gastric, esophagus, colon ... cancer. Here we introduce a selector for the search panel to make use of the Beacon v2 filters includeDescendantTerms pragma, which can be set to false if one only wants to query for the term itself and exclude any child terms from the matching.

Please be aware that this can only be applied globally and will affect all filtering terms used in a query. More information is available in the Filtering Terms documentation.
