Search Concepts / Document

What is Document?

The term document refers to a single page or item in a website search index. On a publishing website, for example, a document could be a single article. On an ecommerce website, a document could be a product listing. SERPs list documents that are relevant to a given query, sorted by their relevance score. The structure and format of documents in a search index is called the schema.

In Swiftype

Within all Swiftype products, you can view and edit all the documents in your search engine index. Within Site Search, you can individually add or delete documents from your Engine index. Under the details tab for a specific document, you can also view the various fields and overall schema of an individual document. Within App Search, you can view the Schema tab to see your overall schema, or the Documents tab to search for individual documents. Given that App Search is an API-centric product, you can use the API endpoints to request this information and receive it in JSON format.
