Field Facet Stage

Table of Contents

The Field Facet query pipeline stage is used to add a Solr Field Facet query to the search query pipeline.

A field facet query computes the top values for a field and returns the list of those values along with a count of the subset of documents in the search results which match that term. Field faceting works best over fields which contain a single label or set of labels from a finite, controlled lexicon such as product category. Facet field parameters can be tuned for performance, see: Facet Field Configuration.

It is possible to specify more than one field facets. For each field facet you must specify the field name plus the following additional parameters:

  • Limit. The maximum number of terms to be returned. Default 100.

  • Offset. The number of top facet values to skip in the response. Default 0.

  • Sort. The order in which to list facet values: count ordering is by documents per term, descending, and index ordering is sorted on term values themselves.

  • Missing. The number of documents in the results set which have no value for the facet field.

  • Choice of facet method (advanced). Specify Solr algorithm used to calculate facet counts. (See Facet Method Configuration for details). One of:

    • enum. Small number of distinct categories.

    • fc ("field cache"). Many different values in the field, each document has low number of values, multi-valued field.

    • fcs ("single value string fields"). Good for rapidly changing indexes.

For further details see: Solr Faceting Overview.

When using Fusion's REST API, the ID for this stage is:facet.
