User-Based Rank



The User Result Ranker module helps authors to find relevant content fast when searching in the Find Bar by boosting search ranking capabilities.

Due to a dependency on Periscope version 1.2.10, User Result Ranker module will not work with Periscope versions prior to that one.

Installing with Maven

Maven is the easiest way to install the module. Add the following to your bundle:

  <version>1.0.3</version> (1)
1 Should you need to specify the module version, do it using <version>.
  <version>1.0.3</version> (1)
1 Should you need to specify the module version, do it using <version>.


Search results are ranked in the following order:

  1. Last used content

    If you’ve recently searched for something and clicked on a result, that result is prioritized and appears higher up in your search results the next time you perform a search.

  2. Most used content

    If no recent results are found, the system prioritizes content that you’ve interacted with frequently in the past. For example, if you previously clicked on a search result for a page titled Swiss-cheese multiple times, then it’s displayed at the top of the search results when you search for the word 'Swiss'.

  3. User group-based recommendations

    If neither recent nor frequently used content is available, the system considers recommendations from users in your user group (such as the 'editors' group). For example, if other editors have interacted with a page titled Swiss-watch, it’s displayed as the top result when you search for 'Swiss' for the first time.

The metrics collected by the User Result Ranker module are stored in the userranking workspace.
