I have an application that us using FAST as the back bone for a very customized search. One of the requirement that I have is to determine the highest and lowest value of a managed property. I would like this value to be pulled back from FAST in the refiners.

I have used the discretize=manual and set thresholds, I was going to use this to find the largest range that a value lies in (these values reflect a set of drop down lists of integer values that are used to show a price range) however this is limited to a maximum of 10 values and my list has 14!

So my question is how do I configure Fast to pull the maximum and minimum values in a managed property?

  • How do I get all possible values? The refiner that I am sending to FAST is this currently <Refiner>propertylistingprice(discretize=manual/50/75/100/150/200/250/300/350/400/500/600/700)</Refiner> How would i set it to return indavidual values? Adam Clifford

You can use the refiners as you suggest. But instead of putting them in buckets get all possible values and pick the max and min.
