Paul, thanks for confirming. Can you elaborate on "the non-wildcard selection criteria as a
leading prefix"? What does that mean?

So to handle an AND/OR statement would best be or perhaps only way to do with multiple views?
So since Andrey wanted to support "brand and category" or "brand or category" he would need
3 views right?

One for item, brand and category, second for item and brand, and the third for item and category?

Correct me if I'm wrong. So I'd create a view where the index has item, brand and category
and then you can just include a key set for each grouping you want in the post body.
