getting reference link , even content is not present in index.
we are created embeddings for 4 different documents and stored in pinecone, we are performing querying, when we ask a question for which the answer is not presented in any of 4 documents. In that case we should not get source instaed we should get empty.
ex: we are getting like this → metadata={‘page’: 0.0, ‘source’: ‘/home/sravani/YTP’}),
