Heya @Subhasis_Dash! Unfortunately the 10k results per query limit isn't configurable (per Limits | Elastic App Search Documentation [7.14] | Elastic).
Unfortunately our APIs not having an easy way to return total # of documents is a known issue, but we have a 2 workarounds/approaches you could try if all you need is the >10k number of results.
The workarounds use the facets feature and depends on the structure/content of your documents. The idea is to use a criteria (either value or range facet) that is broad enough so that it will cover the entire set of your documents.
Option 1 (using value facet):
- Add a new field to every document you have and set it to the same/exact field value
- Then add the value facet clause against this new field to every search request. Given that every document will be tagged with this same/exact value, you can use the count returned for this value facet (since every document will be tagged with the same field value)
Option 2 (using range facet):
- If you have an existing "date" field (e.g., created_at, updated_at, etc..) that is already there in every document, you can use a range facet clause against this "date" field and set the range be as broad as possible that will cover every document, e.g., set the range facet with a range from a really ancient date 1900-01-01T12:00:00.000Z to today's date (or a future date) to ensure that it covers every single document
- Then add the range facet clause against this existing "date" field to every search request. Since every document will be covered in this range, you can use the count returned from this range facet
Hope that helped, and I'll definitely reflag this issue to our team as something to look at in our APIs!
