Discovery will receive the following features & improvements:

  • Search snippets & hit highlighting ** Uses stemming: e.g. "modeling" or "models" are considered identical for hit highlighting. ** Display e.g. title, authors with search keywords highlighted in the regular display ** Display the abstract or full text: limited to the section containing relevant keywords
  • "More like this feature", aka Recommendations ** Shows related items on item display pages ** Items with similar title, author, creator, subject as current item ** Configurable in Spring: which fields used for matching, minimum matching strength, max # items, minimum word length
  • Hierarchical metadata facet support ** Will display only top-level facets in navigation bar ** User can filter on either top-level or lower-level topics ** After including a filter on top-level facet, Discovery will display both the items containing the top-level facet and the items contain the child facets
  • Access Rights Awareness ** Relevant for items without READ rights ** If metadata is private, items are not included in search results (unless the current user has permissions to see the item metadata)
  • Improved user interface ** Stronger focus on search field ** No filters displayed by default ** Clearer differentiation exact filters from sidebar vs. plain text filters

the collection license field should not be indexed (it is an internal field not a metadata).
I have tried to add a comment on the specific code line but I'm not able to find how "save the inline comment"
line: 668 + addContainerMetadataField(doc, highlightedMetadataFields, "dc.rights.license", rights_license);
this has no much sense for me. License is an internal field of the collection not a metadata (it can also contains substitution variables
and it should be used only to produce the deposit license shown in submission)


Agreed, we will look into making the community/collection metadata fields configurable & disable the license field by default.
