Subject Re: Help With map function

Great question as I had been struggling with the same. In the docs its kind of buried there
but you can post multiple keys to a view. I believe this is what you are looking for. Correct
me if I'm wrong. So I'd create a view where the index has item, brand and category and then
you can just include a key set for each grouping you want in the post body.

If you look under the table with all the query params in this section of the View docs:
you'll see a that it mentions you can post multiple keys to a view.

I'm still learning myself so I'm not sure if you can post complex keys (only simple strings
are used). I would assume so since its not stated otherwise but I believe this is what will
solve your problem.

even brand==xxx&category=zzz (xxx,yyy,zzz different every time).
