What characters are ignored in ElasticSearch

    It appears certain characters are ignored in ElasticSearch. For example I often will reference a particulars member by their first name and their handle like this:

    Andy (AndyB)

    So if I want to search for all occurrences of (AndyB) I thought I would be able to enter in quotes "(AndyB)". Unfortunately this does not work. Looks like ES ignores the parenthesis.

    Is there a way to configure ES to not ignore parentheses?

    Also what characters are ignored in ES or should not be used?
