How to find out why certain document matches the query


(Raul, Jr. Martinez) #1

Hello Elastic Users,

In Endeca world, there is a special property called "WhyDidItMatch"
which is pretty helpful in determining why certain documents is part
of a result set. Apologies for using Endeca as point of reference by
the way.

Do we have such equivalent status/functionality in ElasticSearch?

Regards,
Raul
