Sets the relative importance of the different data sources in a search package.

Key: meta.components.[component].weight
Type: Double
Can be set in: collection.cfg


This setting enables an administrator to set the relative importance of the different data sources that make up a search package. The importance of a data source is set by defining a value between 0.0 (less important) and 1.0 (more important) to each of the data sources. A data source has a 0.5 weight assigned by default.

This weighting is then combined with the cool.21 ranking setting which provides the overall influence of the relative data source importance within the wider ranking algorithm.

that when this value is modified via the value API, a search package update is automatically triggered to cause the search package’s index to be updated to reflect the changes.

If a change is made via the value-raw API, the configuration editor’s edit raw data screen the search package update must be manually triggered.

Default Value
