GROUP BY in SearchService?

Tuesday 16 June 2015 11:49:13 am - 2 replies

I need to group articles by day, based in the publish date. While there is a SortClause in SearchService, I have not found a grouping. Any suggestions or workarounds?

As mentioned on Slack, there is no such thing currently in the SearchService. Newer versions of Solr do support something like that but its hard to say when this will be supported in the Public API.

Hi Ivo

thanks for your comment. I was suspecting this.

As a reference for others, here is how I solved the problem. Given the small number of records to process (I fetch bunches of 20 objects, sorted by publish date), I do the grouping in PHP with this simple trick:

$date = date_format( $content->contentInfo->publishedDate, 'Y-m-d' );
$items[$date][] = $content;
