Thanks Nikita & helix for bringing this up.

It is correct that the discovery auto complete feature has been intentionally left out in the context of the DSpace 3.0 Discovery contributions. 

By accident this information did not end up in the documentation, which has now been rectified:

After reviewing our auto-complete code, originally written for DSpace 1.7, we felt the feature was not up to par for inclusion in 3.0, both on the level of the actual functionality and performance.

We are still working on our own roadmap for upcoming DSpace contributions and have not decided whether additional work on this will be included.

Given that the issue came up, it would be an excellent opportunity to get feedback. If you have used Discovery auto complete in v1.7 or v1.8, were you satisfied with the behaviour and results (largely depending on which fields you chose to index & the quality of your metadata)?

All suggestions for improvement could benefit the community.

best regards,

Bram Luyten

I never used this option, but according to documentation you're
supposed to add a new filter as a new value tag, like this:

<property name="defaultFilterQueries">

Try that and let us know whether it works for you.
