Boosting in two-parts boolean query?


(Alexander Sviridov) #1

Hi!
I'm building a boolean query consisting of two parts joined with
"should": text_phrase_prefix (for the street name) and term (for the
house number).

How can I boost first part to give higher score to hits with right
street name?

I've tried adding high "boost" in text_phrase_prefix, adding low boost
in terms, wrapping them in custom_boost_factor query... no effect at
all :frowning:

Score remains nearly the same for all hits.
What could I did wrong?

Thank you!

Could you post an example of a query that didn't work for you?
