User Identity Index

The Sitevision Identity Index (also vaguely known as "the social index") contains sv:userIdentity data. The User Identity Index is of type sv:applicationIndex.

User Identity Index requires license feature "Social Collaboration".

The User Identity Index search endpoint of the REST API requires that calling user has Permission.READ on the sv:site.

The User Identity Index must be explicitly specified (i.e. via SearcherBuilder.setIndex) when querying it via Searcher in the API. The User Identity Index is typically fetched via IndexUtil.

var searchFactory = require('SearchFactory');
var identityIndexType = require('IndexUtil.IndexType.USER_IDENTITY');

// Get the User Identity index
var indexUtil = searchFactory.getIndexUtil();
var identityIndex = indexUtil.getDefaultIndex(identityIndexType);

if (identityIndex) {
   var searcher = searchFactory.getSearcherBuilder()
                    .setIndex(identityIndex) // Set index

   var searchResult ='the query', 10);
   /* handle search result... */   
} else {
   /* handle what to do when there's no User Identity index */

  • Used as "qf" by ExtendedDisMaxParser
  • Used as "df" by StandardParser

name.sortable (solr.CollationField)

Name in sortable form.

searchable (solr.BoolField, stored)

Whether or not the identity should be searchable (some build-in Sitevision modules and functions uses this field to bypass searchability - i.e. can find "non-searchable" identities).

site (solr.StrField, stored)

The sv:site of the identity.

svtype (solr.StrField, stored, multivalued)

Type of resource. Field exists for compability with other indexes only (value is always "useridentity").

Dynamic Fields

User fields of an identity is handled by dynamic fields that are prefixed with "userfield.".

userfield.* (solr.StrField, stored, multivalued)

The user field value as string.

userfield.analyzed.* (solr.TextField, analyzed, multivalued)

The user field value in analyzed format.

Will be appended implicitly as default query field in Searcher when using the ExtendedDisMaxParser when no custom search fields ("qf") are explicitly set.

userfield.sortable.* (solr.CollationField)

The user field value in sortable format
