Wildcard Queries (Converter issue)

I go through bunch of pages like:

https://world.optimizely.com/blogs/mark-stott/dates/2021/11/optimizely-search-wildcard-queries-and-best-bets/

tldr; the wildcard query should looks like `$"*{query}*"` but (I guess recently) there was a change introduced, and it start to throw:

(CMS 11 vs CMS 12)


so it throws on widldcards now :blowing-head:

If I remove logic adding '*' it won't perform "wildcard search"...


Change introduced in version 15.0.0. In version 14.2.4 there is no such check.

I patched it temporary by downgrading the version to 14.2.4, but I do not think it should be the way to do it :D

Yes the story is FIND-9992. I believe the reason was prefix wildcard is very expensive to perform which affects the cluster itself. So it's the new limitation we'll have to live with
