Explain a search against a particular document


(Nicolas Lalevée) #1

Hi,

In order to do some debug I need to use the Lucene feature IndexSearcher#explain(Query q, int doc). I didn't find such API in Elasticsearch. Did I missed it ?

Not exactly. The feature you're pointing me is about having explanation about the list of documents, the results of a query. I'm interested in the explanation of the score of a specific document against a query.

No, there ins't an API for that, though we can add one (i.e. give a query and an ID, and explain it).

ok.
If I have some spare cycles, I may propose a patch.

I implemented it, you can review it on my github [1]

I am not sure if I have put the code at the right place, if i should have put the code of TransportExplainAction#shardOperation in a SearchService or in a IndexService. Let me know what you think.

Looks good!. I think it requires some cleaning up (for example,
ExplainDocResult is not used, and I don't think we need id on the explain
source builder), but those are cosmetics :). Create a pull request?

done.

ExplainDocResult was indeed useless. I did also some cleanup of the javadoc.
Note that the implementation I have done is mainly a copy/paste/merge of the /get and /search services, I don't understand every line in this patch, feel free to rework.

Next would be patching the doc. Maybe I'll have spare cycle tomorrow to do so.
