Custom Intervals or Categories for Refiners

Product 07/09/2011 by Jan Petter Bergfjord

In previous versions, refiners were constrained to filter objects in an Object Class based on properties. Version 2011.3 introduces refiners with the ability to match objects based on a condition. That is, you can define refiners which aggregates search results into custom intervals or categories, such as
 
  • Price intervals for real estate
  • Age intervals classifying accounts receivable (0-30 days, 31-60 days etc.)
  • Age groups classifying employees
  • Customer credit rating based on different criteria
 
Custom categories are defined by Code Domains in your Directory. For a given Refiner bound to a Code Domain, a mapping to an Object Class is defined by specifying a condition for each value in that Code Domain.
