Elasticsearch autocomplete- / suggest by token

After I had read > 100 articles, blog-posts, documentation pages and much
more I'll ask the community but still wonder where my blind spot is, if I
had overseen the obvious.

I want to create search-suggestions on how to complete a term based on
tokens, similar to google like autocomplete but only with one token or
word.

I'd like to search across filenames who will get tokenized. E.g.
"BRAND_Connect_A1233.jpg" gets tokenized into "brand", "connect", "a1234"
and "jpg".

Now I'd like to ask for some suggestion for e.g. "Con". The suggestion
should deliver the matching tokens, not the full filename:

  • Connect
  • Contour
  • Concept
  • ...

The suggestion for "A12" should be "A1234", "A1233", "A1233" ...

I created a complete test scenario, available at Gist:

Some remarks about the example:

  • Working with queries, facet and filters works fine. The example is a
    minimized version of a much more complex scenario.
  • Various approaches to get the desired suggestion does not deliver the
    expected results. I had tried to name the analyzers and tried various
    combinations of analyzers and wildcards.

Any help, pointer or working example will be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Christian

Hi Christian,

Have you found how to solve your question?..It's really hard to think that
is not possible to do that with ElasticSearch. We have been also trying to
achieve that, but no luck till today.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Izzat

Dear Izzat,

finally yes, we had solved the problem.

The solution consist of the proper combination of mapping and query.
I'll attach some examples, hope this will help you.

dam_mapping.txt: The mapping.

dam_query.txt: A typical query with two query strings and some facets

dam_query_result.txt: The result of the query.

Kind regards,
