   $queries as cts.query
) as FacetsSearch


Specify one or an array of cts.query's used to qualify the facet values and the document result set (if requested).

$queries One or an array of cts.query objects. Some helper functions such as cts.parse() and jsearch.byExample() return a cts.query object.

Usage Notes

If your facet operation also includes a documents query, then the where clause of that query qualify only the documents. By contrast, this where can be used to qualify both the facet values and any returned documents.

  • How can I set options for the search using this model? I'd like to use score-simple rather than the default score-tfidf.
    • You include options in the construction of the query you pass to the where clause. For example, in a call to cts.elementRangeQuery. The exact way to specify it will vary depending on how you're constructing your query (cts constructor, jsearch.byExample, cts.parse). See also http://docs.marklogic.com/8.0/guide/search-dev/javascript#id_26946.
      • Kim - the score-simple option is an option to cts.search, not cts.query. I found out in the meantime that we pass this option to jsearch.documents().withOptions() and you can pass jsearch.documents as a parameter to jsearch.facets.
