multi level faceting

Nguyen, Vincent (CDC/OD/OADS) (CTR)
Hi,

 

I was wondering if there's a way to display facet options based on
previous facet values.  For example, I've seen many shopping sites where
a user can facet by "Mens" or "Womens" apparel, then be shown "sizes" to
facet by (for Men or Women only - whichever they chose).  

 

Is this something that would have to be handled at the application
level?

 

Vincent Vu Nguyen

I think that is just sending 2 fq facet queries through. In Solr PHP I would do that with, e.g.

$params['facet'] = true;
$params['facet.fields'] = array('Size');
$params['fq'] => array('sex' => array('Men', 'Women'));

but yes i think you'd have to send through what the current facet query is and add it to your next drill-down

RE: multi level faceting

Yes, by adding fq back into the main query you will get results increasingly filtered each time.

You may run into an issue if you are displaying facet counts, as the facet part of the query will also obey the increasingly filtered fq, and so not display counts for other categories anymore from the chosen facet (depends if you need to display counts from a facet once the first value from the facet has been chosen if you get my drift). Local params are a way to deal with this by not subjecting the facet count to the same fq restriction (but allowing the search results to obey it).

Hi,

I *think* this is not what Vincent was after.  If I read the suggestions
correctly, you are saying to use &fq=x&fq=y -- multiple fqs.
But I think Vincent is wondering how to end up with something that will let him
create a UI with multi-level facets (with a single request), e.g.

Footwear (100)
  Sneakers (20)
    Men (1)
    Women (19)

  Dancing shoes (10)
    Men (0)
    Women (10)
...

If this is what Vincent was after, I'd love to hear suggestions myself. :)

Take a look at "Mastering the Power of Faceted Search with Chris

(http://www.lucidimagination.com/solutions/webcasts/faceting).  I think
there's an example of what you're looking for there.

Just to clarify, the effect I was look for was this.  

Sneakers
   Men (22)
   Women (43)

AFTER a user filters by one of those, they would be presented with a NEW

Sneakers
   Men
      Size 7
      Size 7
      Size 7

RE: multi level faceting

Dyer, James
I've a similar problem with a project I'm working on now.  I am holding out for either SOLR-64 or SOLR-792 being a bit more mature before I need the functionality but if not I was thinking I could do multi-level faceting by indexing the data as a "String" like this:

id: 1
SHOE: Sneakers|Men|Size 7

id: 2
SHOE: Sneakers|Men|Size 8

id: 3
SHOE: Sneakers|Women|Size 6

etc

and then in the UI, show just up to the first delimiter (you'll have to sum the counts in the UI too).  Once the user clicks on "Sneakers", you would then add fq=SHOE:Sneakers|* to the query and then show the values up to the 2nd delimiter, etc.  

Alternatively, if you didn't want to use a wildcard query, you could index each level separately like this:

id: 1
SHOE1: Sneakers
SHOE2: Sneakers|Men
SHOE3: Sneakers|Men|Size 7

Then after the user clicks on the 1st level, fq on SHOE1 and show SHOE2, etc.  This wouldn't work so well if you had more than a few levels in your hierarchy.

I haven't actually tried this and like I said I'm hoping I could just use a patch (really I hope 3.x gets released GA with the functionality but I won't hold my breath...)  But I do think this would work in a pinch if need be.

Just to clarify, the effect I was look for was this.  

Sneakers
   Men (22)
   Women (43)

AFTER a user filters by one of those, they would be presented with a NEW
facet field such as

Sneakers
   Men
      Size 7 (10)
      Size 8 (11)
      Size 9 (23)

Hi,

I *think* this is not what Vincent was after.  If I read the suggestions

correctly, you are saying to use &fq=x&fq=y -- multiple fqs.
But I think Vincent is wondering how to end up with something that will
let him
create a UI with multi-level facets (with a single request), e.g.

Footwear (100)
  Sneakers (20)
    Men (1)
    Women (19)

  Dancing shoes (10)
    Men (0)
    Women (10)
...

If this is what Vincent was after, I'd love to hear suggestions myself.
:)

Hi,

there is a solution without the patch. Here it should be explained:
http://www.lucidimagination.com/blog/2010/08/11/stumped-with-solr-chris-hostetter-of-lucene-pmc-at-lucene-revolution/

If not, I will do on 9.10.2010 ;-)

Regards,
Peter.

Re: multi level faceting

Peter
Hi,

there are two relative similar solutions for this problem.

I will describe one of them:
 * create a multivalued string field called 'category'
 * you have a category tree. so make sure a document gets not only the
leaf category, but all categories (name or id) until the root
 * now facet over category with '-1' as limit
 * What if you want to display only the categories of one level? (e.g.
if you don't want other level at a time or if they are too much).
   then use index the category field ala <level>_category and use
facet.prefix to filter the category list
 * clicking on a category entry should result in a filter query ala
fq=category:"selectedCategoryWithLevel"
   the little tricky part is now that your UI or middle tier has to
parse the level e.g. 2 and the append 2+1=3 to the query: facet.prefix=3_
 * if you filter the level then one question remains:
    Q: how can you display the path from the selected category until the
root category?
    A: Either get the category parents via DB (which is easy if you
store the category ids in solr) or
    get the parents from the parameter list which is a bit more
complicated (in this case I think it is best to  store the category
names in solr).

(The second approach is: instead of using facet.prefix you can use
dynamic fields ala category_<level>_s)

Did this explaination is missing sth. or unclear?

Kind Regards,
Peter.
