ES problem was handling of relationships:

1. handle it at app level – hit two different indices. with ID’s
2. Nested children – problem is re-indexing of parent every time children are updated, mapping has to be of nested type. costly if too many children
3. Parent Child – can do : parent indexed separately and children indexed separately. link is mantained between them.
children can be queried separately. need not tranverse thru parent

Char Filter-> Tokenizer -> Token Filter

term/ term(s) : not analyzed

field{ gte, lte }

The term query does not analyze the search term, the match query uses the same analyzer for search as was used to index the field

query: filtered : [query, filter ]
query : match_phrase or query :match : field { query: value, type:match_phrase}
query: must : match : field
query : bool or query->filtered->filter:bool
query:fitleredXXXbool does not work

filtered filter OR / AND / EXISTS/

match, latest

must is keep score count, should does not add to score count
term does not use analyzer, must uses the default analyzer,

match_phrase query is the one you should reach for when you want to find words that are near each other:

    "query_string" : {
        "fields" : ["city.*","name","age"],
        "query" : "this AND that OR thus",
        "use_dis_max" : true

query -> match_phrase


multi field mapping with two mappings – one is for existing token other is not analyzed

"title": {
    "type": "multi_field",
    "fields": {
        "title": { "type": "string" },
        "raw":   { "type": "string", "index": "not_analyzed" }


"title": {
    "type": "string",
    "fields": {
        "raw":   { "type": "string", "index": "not_analyzed" }
