Featured Use Case
A Multi-Map index allows to index data from multiple different collections.
RavenDB will generate a single Multi-Map index.
The results of querying the Multi-Map index will include data from all these collections.
Multi-Map indexes require that all the Map functions defined have the same output structure.
In this page:
Define a Map Function:
Index Name - An index name can be composed of letters, digits, ., /, -, and _. The name must be unique in the scope of the database.
The Map Function
Add another map function to create a multi-map index.
The Collection field indexed in the above example is not mandatory but can be useful upon querying.
Add another Map Function:
Any number of additional Map functions can be added.
Each added Map should have the same output fields.
i.e. In the above example, the common indexed fields are: Name & Collection.
So when querying on this Multi-Map index, results will come from both Employees collection and Companies collection.
Index field options,
can be defined for the Multi-Map index in the same way as done for a Simple Map Index.
