Terms Facet wrong count when Filter is used



I am working with Epi Find on an Epi 6 R2 site and I'm having an issue with terms facets.

My problem is that the Count property of TermsFacet objects show the total amount of this facet BEFORE filters.


var result = SearchClient.Instance.UnifiedSearchFor("foo");
                 .FilterHits(x => x.SearchTitle.MatchCaseInsensitive("testpage"));

                 .TermsFacetFor(x => x.SearchTypeName)


var typeFacets = result.TermsFacetFor(x => x.SearchTypeName);

The typeFacets Count property here wont take into acount the filtering with FilterHits, meaning if I take away that row the counts for the typeFacets objects will still be the same.

So if the total hits for "foo" is 100, but after filtering on "testpage" only has 1 result, a facet for SearchTypeName might still have Count 90.

Any ideas?

use .Filter() instead of .FilterHits().

FilterHits will only filter the result, not the facets.

That did the trick. Perfect! Thanks a lot.

Is their anyway I can just update the count value for the Facet, I do not want to filter them out ?

Hi Minesh, did you find a solution to your issue?  I have a similar issue whereby I want to use FilterHits to get all of the facets but with an updated count.  Thanks for your help!

I cant remember exactly what I was trying to achieve in 2018, are you able to give more context on what your issue is.

If you want to return all Terms even with 0 results you can use the AllTerms feature

.TermsFacetForCategory(f => f.Category, facet =>
facet.Size = 100;
facet.AllTerms = query.AllTerms;

Hi Daniel, Please try with this query.

.UnifiedSearchFor("foo").For("testpage").Include(x => x.SearchText.AnyWordBeginsWith("testpage"));
