FieldCheckType Fields

You can configure HPE IDOL Server to identify a field contained in a large number of documents whose entire value is frequently used to restrict results (for example, a field that stores category names). When this field is indexed, HPE IDOL Server stores it in a fast look-up table in memory, so that it can quickly return the field.

NOTE:

If you set URLAnalysis to True in the [Server] section of the HPE IDOL Server configuration file, you cannot identify a field as a FieldCheckType field, because HPE IDOL Server automatically uses the domain it finds in ReferenceType fields as the FieldCheck value.

When you now use a Query, Suggest, or SuggestOnText action to query for results, you can:

Combine Parameter Example

In this example, HPE IDOL Server is configured to store the Category field as a FieldCheckType field.

The following query is sent to HPE IDOL Server.

http://12.3.4.56:4000/action=Query&Text=The best thing to do in your spare time&Combine=FieldCheck

If HPE IDOL Server contains 50 documents that match the query text, of which eight contain a Category field with the value Sport, five contain a Category field with the value Gardening, and one contains a Category field with the value Cooking, the above query returns only three results:

FieldCheck Parameter Example

In this example, HPE IDOL Server is configured to store the Color field as a FieldCheckType field.

The following query is sent to HPE IDOL Server.

http://12.3.4.56:4000/action=Query&Text=A fast sports car&FieldCheck=Red

This query returns only results whose content matches the specified Text and whose FieldCheckType field has the value Red.
