Fuzziness parameter with a more_like_this query - deprecated?

(Phil Godzin) #1

According to https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.5/query-dsl-flt-query.html, the fuzzy_like_this query is deprecated, but the fuzziness field can be used with the MLT query.

However, https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.5/query-dsl-mlt-query.html does not document the field at all, and when I try to add the fuzziness field to my mlt query I get
"reason": "[mlt] query does not support [fuzziness]"

Is there any support for a fuzzy mlt query? I am currently on ES 2.4, does a later version support this?
