Querybuilder query multiple paths and other properties

Avatar

Level 9

I do have a question on query builder query and if it is the apt way to proceed on 6.5.8

I have a structure as below

/var/test/user

  /A

    /0222223ead

  /B

   /234534rrr43 

and  58 more direct children for /var/test/user

I want to query for a property with a value "x", and link contains "/content/dam/y" and within a date range for "created" ordered by "created" and sort it.

 

The Querybuilder query i can think of is below. I would like to know if there is 

1. a limit to the number of "group" keyword used, while i am sure passing too many will perhaps lead to bad request with too many header fields.

2. way to optimize the query for a system with huge number of nodes under that structure (nested 8 levels deep)

3.Should i split it into multiple queries and merge?

4. Using below query should i be seeing "Filtering predicates"  displaying something? It appears to be blank in Query builder

Query

type=nt:unstructured
group.1_path = /var/test/user-info/0
group.2_path =/var/test/user-info/1

:

:

group.n_path =/var/test/user-info/n

group.p.or=true
1_property = action
1_property.value = X
2_property = @node/link
2_property.operation = like
2_property.value = /content/dam/y/assets/%
3_daterange.property = created
3_daterange.upperBound = 2022-01-01T12:09:00.000-05:00
3_daterange.lowerBound = 2021-06-01T12:09:00.000-04:00
orderby = created
orderby.sort = desc
p.limit=40000
p.offset=0
p.guesstotal=40000

Here , user-info [/var/test/user-info] is having 60 children and you are targeting immediate children of 0,1.... n.

I feel instead of having multiple groups associated with path, you could have used 

type= nodetype [jcr:primaryType] of 0222223ead, 234534rrr43 
path=/var/test/user-info

 

If incase node type [jcr:primaryType] of 234534rrr43, 0222223ead is similar to user-info node, in that case  you can get expected result by adding date range, required property like action, link. 

 

Suppose you are targeting nodes[children] under multiple paths like /var/test/user-info and /var/test/demo and both are having different types children [jcr:primaryType], then you can use group associated with paths.

 

Below you could see I am targeting nodes like 425b2b8f-50f0-45ab-b8b4-e210d906b71c and my query -

type=cq:AuditEvent
path=/var/audit/com.day.cq.wcm.core.page/conf/demo
1_property = cq:path
1_property.operation = like
1_property.value = /conf/demo/settings/wcm/templates/page-content%
p.limit=-1

As of now practically I haven't seen merging of two different query builder queries. 

 

Requesting @Arun_Patidar , @Jörg_Hoh and others to correct me and add more valuable points.

Thanks @DEBAL_DAS ... i could have but the other properties i am searching for are a mix of properties and nodes containing properties.. I ran batching for the query in the original question  and it seems to have done the job but will keep an eye on anyones input here

@NitroHazeDev , long back I used the below querybuilder query with mix of properties and multiple paths -

If I see get anything in terms of merging of multiple queries then I will share with you immediately.

Thanks @DEBAL_DAS  for your time with this, for now sticking with initial approach mentioned in the post with batching.

Hi @DEBAL_DAS 

I don’t know the exact requirement but queries looks complex.

I would have used the SQL2 queries or create custom predicate in order to make it easier to manage.

@Arun_Patidar  thanks for the response. For now, I have chosen grouping(10 at a time) with batching of results, but is there a way with the given requirement custom predicate evaluator can be used ?
