Creates a new rank profile to calculate relevance in queries.

New-FASTSearchMetadataRankProfile -Name <String> [-Template <RankProfile>]



Parameter Required Type Description




The name of the new rank profile.




An object representing the rank profile that will serve as a template in creating the new rank profile.

Detailed Description

A rank profile controls the relevancy calculation for a query. It consists of several components which are weighted so that the relevancy calculation fits the content. See Set-FASTSearchMetadataRankProfile for more details.

A rank profile can either be created with default values, or based on another existing rank profile using the Template parameter.

The rank profile is typically specified as part of a query. If no rank profile is specified in the query, the default rank profile is used.
