I use scrolling to page through large sets of documents and noticed
recently I hadn't set search_type=scan when I don't need sorting.
Once I enabled search_type=scan I noticed two inconsistencies compared
against the default search_type:
- search_type=scan doesn't return any results when starting to scroll
while the default search_type returns the first page of results. (The docs
seem to warn this happens, but it seems like a strange inconsistency within
the scroll API).
- search_type=scan doesn't seem to honor size=N
The second one is a much bigger deal as I have an API backed by an ES
scroll where users can specify the page size they want.
You should be able to fully reproduce what I'm seeing using this:
Do I need to use from=... with size=...? I didn't have to before switching
I'm using ES 1.1.1 on Ubuntu using the deb provided by ES.org.
