Parametric Search

Topics in this Section

The GetTagValues and GetQueryTagValues actions allow you to execute parametric searches.
A parametric search allows you to search for items by their characteristics (values in certain fields). When you provide fixed values in parametric fields, the parametric search returns consistent values in the nonfixed parametric fields. For example, you can search an IDOL server wine database for specific wine varieties from a specific region by specifying which fields must match these characteristics. Only wines that match the specified variety and region return.
