ESM Purchase Enhancements

 

Product Search Indexing Technology Updated

 

In the Q3 release, we have updated the version of Solr used to provide search results in the product search on the Shop Page. This update prepares us for work in our Q4 release during which we will enhance the search results so that more relevant matches are found at the top of the page.

There are a couple of known issues in the Q3 release as a result of this update.

First, entering the following special characters into the search bar when performing a term search may result in an error: " : { } [ ] ( ) ^ ~ Please avoid using these characters in your product search.  We will resolve this issue in a maintenance release.

The second difference is that your products may appear in a slightly different order.  This will be enhanced in the Q4 release where we will use the concepts of boosting to provide a better score and relevance rank for search results.
