Ezfind search based enhanced selection datatype

Tuesday 14 June 2011 12:11:14 pm - 8 replies

Hi ,

       Is there anyway can I map enhanced selection attribute to solr.

       In ezfind search  , I couldn't get the results based values from a dropdown list which contain  enhaned seletion attribute values .

Anywork around ideas will be a great help.

Indeed ezselection index only IDs. As far as I'm concerned I started from eZ Selection 2 project ( and I tweaked it to give necessary information to search engine.

Thanks for the reply .


            While I was reading the forum , I read a thread thats from you about mapping of ezselection to solr felds. But frankly I didn't get much from that.

What do you suggest for me. Should I change from enhaned selection to ezselection2. Can you please give me some more ideas.

That's hard to say. Personnaly I went into tweaking ezselection2 but the solution is not very stable ... 

The problem is that there is no real solution to handle selection. If your problem is only indexing I would go with a modification of metadata() method of ezselection and make a pull request, but I don't know if that's a BC break or not ...

In fact I would love to know the vision of one eZ Engineer about all the problems around ezselection .... Maybe something is planned for next release happy.gif Emoticon

At last  I could work ezfind with ezselection2 datatype to map to solr fileds to get the results based ezselection2 datype values.

Thanks a lot Matthieu

Hy everybody I found a small issue when editing the class.

If you want to add more options via the quick can not unless you add at least one option  by hand in the Options area....

I know it's not big but at least as info.

Also am now working on introducing radio button rendering when selecting single options. One of my client requested it so...I think it's a good idea.
