How to combine multiple fields and aggregate docs from it?


#1

I am trying to combine two fields and aggregate for doc count from the combined field.

Let's say I have two fields as following.

{
"width": 320,
"height": 480
}

I would like to combine these two fields and create a temporarily field called

{
"resolution": "320x480"
}

And then aggregate the document counts based on the "resolution" and sort by it.

I couldn't find any solution for this.
I can only think of creating a new field inside original doc.

Does anyone has a brilliant idea?

I think you could use that: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.1/search-aggregations-bucket-terms-aggregation.html#search-aggregations-bucket-terms-aggregation-script

That said it will be more efficient if you generate this field at index time.
