I'm finding the documentation on elasticsearch 5.5 to be sparse, inaccurate and overall frustrating. I have a simple match query. When I try to use the "and" operator. It returns no results. Older google searches for "multiword" queries from 2.2 give more detail yet those pages no longer exist for 5.5.
If I remove the "operator" statement I get results and I can clearly see the words in the topic field. Sadly, elastic documentation only alludes to the many other requirements you need for the meager examples to work. So what is the trick to get this kind of query to return results? Most basic query here.
