Indexing large text fields


I'm trying to index news and other articles that my clients upload and allow free text search on them.
Is elasticsearch the right choice since there's a limit to text field size which get indexed.


Which limit are you referring to?

Yes. Think about wikipedia. They are indexing lot of content in elasticsearch.
Also have a look at AppSearch and may be Site Search. That could be even easier.

Sorry, in the mapping configuration, there was a confusing term:

"type" : "text",
"fields" : {
" keyword" : {
"type" : "keyword",
"ignore_above" : 256

The "ignore_above" value refers to a single word, not the entire field.
