Thanks for the response, Mark!
Well, IMO, the "Advanced Mode" UI is suggesting the former. The advanced mode allows you to pick any field you would like to be graphed (nested or not). So imagine the graph UI in this state:
- I have a node selected that represents a root-level field
- I have several nested fields toggled on in the '"Fields" bar up top
When I hit "+", it seems to me that that should translate to, "Show me the significant connections between this root level field, and the nested fields I have toggled on." But, unfortunately, nothing actually happens when you hit "+".
Probably my understanding of the problem is a bit simplistic, so forgive me if I'm far off target, but I imagine that in such a case like the one I just mentioned, the graph should absolutely draw connections between the root level doc and the nested doc.
We have highly structured and nested documents in our ES cluster at work relating to pulled news articles, tweets, and such. So for instance, a graphical use case I'd like to see manifested would be, "Given articles that mention 'Obama', what are the most prominent key phrases or concepts that relate to him. Or who else is commonly mentioned alongside Obama?" After taking your advice from that earlier post, and reindexing some of the nested details into the root of the doc, I was able to explore those kinds of relationships.
Thanks for being so on top of these questions!
