Linking related documents
Do you know if it's possible to link related documents in a search result? I have a transcript (Word) and sound file of the same interview (WAV) that I would like to display together in a search result. Is that possible?
It is possible to link search results together at the UI level with Coveo. You need to link them at the field value level first in order to be able to use it in the UI.
It can be done 2 ways:
- Through the attachment concept: An indexed document is marked as an attachment of another.
- Through parent-child relationship: Documents share the same value for some fields and their child/parent documents are linked to them.
- ResultAttachment: https://developers.coveo.com/display/JsSearchV1/ResultAttachment+Component
- ResultFolding, Folding, and FoldingForThread:
This blog post explains the folding. What to store in the field values and how to use those components: http://source.coveo.com/2014/09/30/grouping-related-search-results/
With the Coveo .Net Front-End (older UI framework), it is different.
I hope this helps,
