Full Text Search in Managed Database not Stemming Properly?
In my ‘managed’ Postgres database, running that query:
SELECT to_tsvector('The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.’);
'brown’:3 'dog’:9 'fox’:4 'jumped’:5 'lazy’:8 'over’:6 'quick’:2 'the’:1,7
But, from tutorials and also from running that query on a Postgres database installed on Ubuntu, I get:
'brown’:3 'dog’:9 'fox’:4 'jump’:5 'lazi’:8 'quick’:2
It seems like the managed databases aren’t dropping the 'the’, not changing 'lazy’ into 'lazi’, etc.
I also have the behavior of Postgres not finding text with 'dogs’ if looking for 'dog’, for example, which worked with a self installed database I had on Ubuntu.
I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do on our side or is it a limitation of the managed databases?
Note: I checked the collation / charset of the database and it’s all UTF8 (same as my self installed DB that works)
