Information in this document applies to any platform.
Post-calculations are used to customize the search results page. They can be used to provide values for configurable attributes that can carried to the configuration flow. Post-calculations are required for end node type search flow rules as they instruct the selection engine how to use buyer-submitted values.
There are four post-calculation options available:
- None - No post-calculations are specified
- Send Results to External URL (Entire URL) - The search results page can be obtained by posting the specified values for certain attributes to a pre-defined selector engine by selecting the Feed Values into Pre-Defined Engine (Enter URL) option and specifying the selector engine URL to which the values of the attributes in the search flow (current display attributes) is posted to obtain a search results page which also contains a graph. The search flow current display attributes need to be mapped to the equivalent selector engine attributes. On the user-side, based on the values of the search flow attributes, the search results are computed and displayed along with the graph.
Using a third-party selection engine, buyer-defined values are passed to an outside engine that performs the search. This enables you to use more complex mappings than that available through system-supported functional mapping.
- Function to Evaluate Result In Use - This option enables you to define a function, which involves creating a selection script.
- Pop-Up Window Function.
