Keyword Query text limit in SharePoint Search

Hi All,

I was recently asked if we have any limit for Query text we use to perform search in SharePoint.

After some research I found that the length limit of a KQL query varies depending on how you create it. If you create the KQL query by using the default SharePoint search front end, the length limit is 2,048 characters. However, KQL queries you create programmatically by using the Query object model have a default length limit of 4,096 characters. You can increase this limit up to 20,480 characters by using the MaxKeywordQueryTextLength property or the DiscoveryMaxKeywordQueryTextLength property (for eDiscovery).

Again the length of FAST Query Language queries is limited to 2,048 characters.

This applies to SharePoint 2010, 2013
