After defining search attributes, you must map them to either HTML
meta tags for web data sources or table columns for table data sources.
To map search attributes to HTML meta tags, use the "Meta Tag Mappings"
To map search attributes to table sources, refer to step 4 of creating
a table source in the Sources Page. Additionally,
you can view table source mappings in the "Table Column Mappings" subtab
within the "Attributes" tab.
There are no user-managed mappings for the Email Source. There are
two predefined mappings for emails. The "From" field of an
email is intrinsically mapped to the Oracle Ultra Search "Author"
attribute. Likewise, the "Subject" field of an email is mapped
to the Oracle Ultra Search "Subject" attribute.
Search attributes are attributes exposed to the query user. Oracle
Ultra Search provides system-defined attributes such as "Author" and
"Description". You can also define your own.
To define your own attribute, enter the name of the attribute in the
text box and click on Add.
Note: Search attributes cannot be removed.
Meta Tag Mappings
Use this page to map search attributes to meta tags. Meta tags are
descriptive tags found in the HTML document header. They are a general
means of specifying key-value pairs that describe the HTML document.
Search attributes are attributes exposed to the search engine user.
You define search attributes in the "User defined attributes" subtab
under the main "Attributes" tab.
Mappings between meta tags and search attributes are many-to-one.
Multiple meta tags can be mapped to a search attribute. However, a meta
tag cannot be mapped to more than one search attribute.
To map a meta tag to a search attribute, follow these steps:
- Define a new meta tag (Make sure the meta tag is not already defined).
- Select a search attribute to map the meta tag to.
- Click on the 'Map' button.
Note: Once you define a search attribute mapping, you cannot remove
Table Column Mappings
This page displays all mappings between table (or view) columns and search attributes,
for all defined table sources.
You can create such mappings when you define a table data source with
the "Table source" subtab of the Sources Page.
Columns that are mapped to search attributes can be
of type CHAR, VARCHAR, VARCHAR2, NUMBER and DATE.
