Type

Boolean

Example

To define the myFacet facet as sticky:
search?afs:service=...&afs:facet=myFacet,sticky=true

To define all facets as sticky:
search?afs:service=...&afs:facetDefault=sticky=true

A facet can be permanently set as sticky during indexing. For more information, see afs:facet part of the AFS v7.9 Configuration Guide.

The more facets are set as sticky, the slower will be the response time. The following equation presents the impact that sticky facets may have on response time:

response_time_WITH_sticky_facets = response_time_WITHOUT_sticky x number_of_sticky_facets

Best practices recommend to set two sticky facets at the maximum.
