extra_search.ID.cfg (configuration file)

This feature is deprecated and will be removed in a future version. Please update any existing implementations to use supported features.
This configuration file is no longer used and should be upgraded to corresponding ui.modern.extra_searches.* configuration keys.

extra_search.ID.cfg was used to define an extra search which can be enabled using the ui.modern.extra_searches search package configuration setting.

The configuration file applies to Funnelback 16.10 and earlier.

Table of Contents


Funnelback can be configured to run extra searches that are run in parallel with a search. The results from extra searches are appended to the search response and can be used to enhance the search results.

The ui.modern.extra_searches configuration option specifies a set of extra search IDs. Each ID must correspond to an extra_search.ID.cfg file which sets the parameters for the extra search.


A text file consisting of two lines:



Run an additional search (with the same query) for the top three items from the client~ds-courses data source:

query_processor_options= -num_ranks=3

This extra search can then be enabled by setting ui.modern.extra_searches=courses on the search package.
