Firehose and Search


The fieldimin:iminSearchId links items found in the Firehose to items found in Search. Here follows an example:

"imin:iminSearchId": "",

This field can be used to:

  • Cross-reference with Search analytics; and

  • Aggregate near-identical items:

    • When items are ingested into our Search app, we merge near-identical items together so that they can be combined in Search results.

    • The iminSearchId, therefore, is an ID for the composite item that is ingested into Search. This is why you may find multiple items with different ids in Firehose, but the same id in Search.

    • Therefore, because these items will have the same name, activity, organizer, etc., you can use the Search id to aggregate near-identical items.
