How is Relevance Computed?

Relevance is principally based on how the query matches the text fields of the asset and its metadata. It also includes elements such as change frequency, metrics, ownership, etc.

In the search results page, you can further refine the search results by selecting, in the search toolbar, those:

  • With a given Type, for example, "Datasets" or "Glossary Terms"

  • From a given Platform, for example, "Semarchy xDM" or "Oracle"

  • Associated to a given Glossary Term.

  • In a certain Domain

  • Owned By certain users and groups.
