Two-Stage Federated Search Implementation
TLDR Todd inquired about a two-stage federated search. Jason explained federated search doesn't support this & the operation has to be done separately. Viji suggested searching for an intersection, but Jason pointed out it must be implemented within the application.

I see federated search has the capability for searching collections in parallel. However, I need to perform a two stage search, first stage gets a bunch of items with a group_id field, and then the second stage gets a bunch of the groups identified by the id. Is this something federated search can help me with? What do you guys think would be a good way to approach this problem? Also, you can assume that our data model is not hard fixed yet, so if there are any issues there, please let me know. Thanks!
