FacetFilter Class

This section provides an overview of the FacetFilter class and discusses:

  • FacetFilter class methods.

  • FacetFilter class properties.

The FacetFilter class is used to filter the search results on one or more facet values. Facets are aspects, properties, or characteristics of a piece of data. In a PeopleSoft application, this could be PeopleSoft metadata (for example, SETID or business unit), or it could be any other attribute of the data. For example, job openings could be classified (faceted) by location, department or job family, working hours, pay scale, posting date, business unit, SETID, and so on. Facets allow for “filtered search” or “filtered navigation” of search results.
