Marking document as "not searchable", is it possible?


(José de Zárate) #1

I want documents who has certain field/value pairs ("availability: 0"), not
to be "searchable".

There's one solution provided by Igor, which is to use an alias. We set an
alias with the index name and a filter requiring availibity > 0 , and we
make all our search queries to that alias. But I like to know if there's
anyway to tell "ES to "not even look at" those documents. More or less like
the "index:no" option when defining a field mapping, but on a document
level.

I've pursuing this because I think there's a performance gain here, maybe
there's not? an alias with a numeric filter is as performant as this "not
searchable document" solution would be???

Filters are super fast to apply, especially when cached. I wouldn't worry
about the cost of applying a filter.
