How to add weight to custom fields?

I'm indexing a SQL server table. I have mapped a column(heading) from the table to the title field.

So this column values get higher rank in the search results. I have two other columns say summary and description. My intention is that description column should be given more weight than the summary column. Can someone please help me on how to achieve this?

It is not possible to change the weight of individual fields in Coveo. Only the title can have its weight modified through the Ranking Weights section of Coveo Cloud query pipelines.

Coveo relevance engine with usage analytics and machine learning is more than able to return the most relevant search results to every visitor every time without the need to manually assign weights to fields.

Does the above-said explanation applies to all the data sources like Coveo for sitecore, SharePoint.
