HTML autocomplete vs Completion suggestor


(Siddharth Gupta) #1

Hello,

When we already have auto complete functionality in HTML then why should I use Completion Suggester of elastic search ?

Can anybody please help to solve the confusion ?

Thanks
Siddharth

Am I wrong somewhere ?


(Mark Walkom) #4

They're two totally different things though.


(Siddharth Gupta) #5

Implementing completion suggester will require to index suggestion for every document manually ?


(Mark Walkom) #6

Yes, but you can automate it.

Can you please suggest how do we automate it ?
I have master list of user queries.
I want the suggestion for a user query to be from this master list.
How can provide the input and output for each document while indexing ?
Thanks
Siddharth
