Is it possible to add a new property to existing class and use that to impact the search ranking?

Just thinking if this is possible in Weaviate. Our business team wanted to have a profile scoring and from there the search results relevance will:

  • consider Weaviate score
  • consider this new property.

Is this possible? Thanks!

Hi @junbetterway -

If you:

  • have a vectorizer (like text2vec-xx for example) configured for the class, and
  • the property is set up to be vectorized (i.e. is a text property and isn’t set up to be skipped)

That will lead to the vector being updated when the property is updated.
