Search Settings

Parameter Type Description
Context-Aware Search Select Considering the transcript's context for the search. It allows a virtual agent to answer follow-up questions. You can select one of the following options:
- On โ€” is the default option. When this setting is enabled, it affects tokenization costs, which impact the amount of memory, computational power, and overall expenses needed for running an OpenAI or Azure OpenAI model.
- Off โ€” the setting is turned off.
Transcript Steps Indicator Number of prior transcript steps to use in a context-aware search. This parameter is active when the Context-Aware Search setting is enabled.
Where to store the result Select The storage for the search results. Select a storage:

- Input โ€” the content will be stored in the Input object.
- Context โ€” the content will be stored in the Context.
String to search for CognigyScript The string to search for in the knowledge store. A default value is stored in input.text.
Source Tags CognigyScript The tags serve to refine the scope of your knowledge search, allowing you to include only the most pertinent sections of the knowledge base and, as a result, improve the accuracy of search outputs.

Before specifying tags, ensure that they were provided during the upload of the source file for this knowledge source. Add tags by specifying each tag separately and pressing enter. The maximum number of tags is 5.

Tips: Source Tags

  • You can add CognigyScript within Source Tags.
  • Source Tags are always lower-case, only alpha-numerics (a-z, 0-9), underscores, and hyphens are allowed.
  • When using CognigyScript for Source Tags, it is important to lowercase them. For example by using the following: {{"{{input.text.toLowerCase()}}"}}.
