Using Elastic search

Suggest edit Updated on September 18, 2020

To use Elastic search, call the D_<CodeSetName> data page as your data source for either an auto-complete control or elsewhere in any other search field.

The above data page takes two parameters:

  • Code – Data string to search for
  • CodeSetType – Name of the code set that you want to search on

For all classes, you can perform the search for code and description (respective fields for HCPCS, CPT® and so on). It is defined through a search model that is a pySearch rule of type Custom search properties created in each of the classes, which instructs the Elastic code the fields to enable for search.

Note: Although not advisable, but if more fields for search are required, they can be added to the pySearch and adequate data indexing is done. Note that adding too much data may significantly increase the Elastic index file causing potential poor performance.

The data source for the data page is the Activity as PrepareQueryString which prepares the query to be passed and calls the report definition. This Activity sets the properties based on the parameter that is passed and then calls the report definition rule by passing the query string to fetch the records for the specified code set type.
