Applying multiple ranking models within on-prem
For on-prem customers, can the ranking weights be applied differently to, for example, different sources or different user groups? If so, is there documentation on how to do it or should the customer come to Coveo Support or PS for guidance?
With Coveo Enterprise Search, there is only one global setting for ranking weights that applies to all the queries sent to the index: https://onlinehelp.coveo.com/en/ces/7.0/administrator/customizingsearchresults_ranking.htm
However, if you are using the Coveo Search API endpoint for your queries, it supports modifying the ranking weight per query: https://developers.coveo.com/display/SearchREST/Standard+Query+Extensions#StandardQueryExtensions-$weight
You could add the
buildingQuery event: https://developers.coveo.com/display/JsSearchV1/Step+4+-+Modifying+the+Query
I hope this helps
