Configures fetching of documents related to the primary results.
Can be set in: profile.cfg, collection.cfg
This option can be used to fetch documents related (by way of URLs recorded as metadata values) to the primary search results.
The key includes a
relatedDocumentKey which indicates the name under which the related document will be
stored within the
response.resultPacket.results.relatedDocuments section of the data model.
The value must be one of the below forms which define the location to expect URLs of related documents:
In terms of the data model, the two above cases translate to:
No related data fetching is configured by default for most collection types.
If you have a 'previousMessageUrl' field which contains the URL of the previous message in some conversation stream, the following configuration would load it under the name 'previousMessage' with each search result.
If you wished to then load the previous message to that, the following configuration would load the next previous message from the related document loaded above.
This process can be repeated for many metadata classes, and many 'hops' out from the initial search result, however be aware that such lookups can become slow if many are performed for a request.
