The WITH operator can be used within the predicate of an afs:select parameter. It is incompatible with afs:filter or afs:query. It is used only with the document items.

The purpose of this operator is to allow the retrieval of documents that match, for example, two predicates A and B that apply to different kinds of document items.

If replaced by an AND then the document would not be retrieved as no document item matches both A and B. If replaced by an OR then documents containing only items matching A (or B) would be retrieved too.

In the output feed, the document items for a given document that matches the WITH predicate will be the union of all document items matching A or B.

For example, refer to Doc Items Filtering Examples.
