Hi,

While querying using the Bulk Editor i was able to run queries like:

"jcr:title":'GeoBlog'  "sling:resourceType":'social/blog/components/page' 

search for results with cq:tags, cq:toolbars, subtitles, etc but was not able to run queries for the following:

1. cq:template ("cq:template":'/libs/social/blog/templates/page')

2. cq:LastModifiedBy ("cq:LastModifiedBy":'admin')

3. jcr:createdBy ("jcr:createdBy":'admin')

Are there any special properties for these or any other requirements that i am missing on?

I'm using AEM6

The search is successful with the xPath query but there is no way to put LIKE in GQL while querying in the bulk editor. Is there any other way to do that??

I have already gone through this documentation and the properties that I'm searching for are all having string values.

Bulk editor uses JCR GQL API which internally translates the input query string to XPATH query and executes it as an XPATH query statement. I checked the converted statement for cq:template query and it was- 

/jcr:root/content/geometrixx-outdoors//*[(@jcr:primaryType='cq:PageContent' and jcr:contains(@cq:template, '/libs/social/blog/templates/page'))] order by @jcr:score descending

As you can see in the converted statement the GQL uses JCR contains function to search for the value of cq:template property. The contains function searches for values in the full text index. If the property is not indexed then it returns false. In AEM 6 cq:template property is not included in the full text index and thats why you do not get any results. The same logic applies for your other searches. If you replace jcr:contains with jcr:like then the query will return results in AEM 6 but not with contains function unless you include these properties in your full text index.

See this AEM doc topic - make sure that you specify your query parameters properly - as discussed here:

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/administering/bulk_editor.html#Searching and Editing Content

Also - note in the docs - you can only search for string values.
