DocumentWeightingRules

DocumentWeightingRules

is an option for TextSearch and related functions that allows the specification of weights for documents based on the values of fields in the search index.

Details

  • DocumentWeightingRules -> <|"field1" -> <|val11 -> weight11, val12 -> weight12, |>, "field2" -> <||>, |> means that a document with value valij for field "fieldi" will have its score multiplied by weightij.
  • The fields used for DocumentWeightingRules need to have the "Stored" or "BulkRetrievalOptimized" option set to True in ContentFieldOptions.
  • For performance purposes, "BulkRetrievalOptimized" is to be preferred to "Stored".
