Kibana 6.2 Discover Screen: Searching for "/"


I'm storing some disk partition names (eg. /, /boot, etc.) into the following field:
"partition": {
"type": "text",
"fields": {
"keyword": {
"type": "keyword",
"ignore_above": 256

On Discover screen, I can search for partition:"/boot", but not partition:"/". Char "/" is not an special char (

Any thought on how I can search for it?


You probably should just have the partition field mapped as keyword. I made some sample data like this in 6.2.4 and I can filter for / in Discover:

My mapping looks like:

  "partitions": {
    "mappings": {
      "doc": {
        "properties": {
          "partition": {
            "type": "keyword"

Thanks @tsullivan.

I was using Lucene query, partition:"/"

But as you mentioned, using 'keyword' helps to find it in search box: partition.keyword:"/"
