We are testing Query Rules, with a consequence of “Promote a Result”… You can select a result to promote, and this works just fine.
We also utilize the Distinct feature to de-duplicate results based on a parent object identifier.
In testing, we have discovered that Distinct has no affect… You will always have your promoted result, and if the search term yields the same result as your promoted results, you see the result twice.
Is this a known issue? Are there any work arounds?
