The default MyISAM fulltext index does not support non-latin languages (like Chinese, Japanese and Korean). Although there are some hacks to make it work, they seem prohibitively messy. Instead, we should:
- Verify that ElasticSearch produces reasonable results for non-latin languages (the documentation implies it does).
- Verify that our documentation / instructions are sufficient for an install to move to ElasticSearch and reindex its existing corpora.
- Detect when users search for non-latin glyphs and present a useful instruction screen: "the current search engine only supports English and other latin languages. See such-and-such documentation for instructions to upgrade to ElasticSearch".
I can't search Chinese word in Maniphest. When I type Chinese Work in Search field, the result always is empty.
Does Maniphest not support CJK?
