is there any way I can boost a specific path value when executing a query with the QueryBuilder API?
map.put("1_group.p.or", "true"); map.put("1_group.1_path", "/content/test/"); map.put("1_group.2_path", "/content/dam/test/");
I would like to boost pages over DAM assets. I tried using "^5.0" as described here  but maybe that only works for jcr:contains?
See this note in the article:
Note: The boost in this case is respected only if a jcr:contains() is done on the corresponding property, for example jcr:contains(@jcr:title, 'find this'). If there is only a jcr:contains(., 'find this'), the boosts at indexing time have no effect.
jcr:contains(@jcr:title, 'find this')
jcr:contains(., 'find this'),
Looks like it only works on jcr:contains.
OK, thanks guys! Just wanted to make sure I'm understanding that correctly and I'm not missing anything.
As mentioned here , boost applies only when searching for specific terms and I doubt it supports for the path
