I'm curious why the
missing query was deprecated in ES 2.2.
The documentation states that you should "Use exists query inside a must_not clause instead." However, the
exists query doesn't support the
null_value parameter (from the
missing query), meaning that you can't control how null_value's are handled (whether they should be included or excluded from the result).
Are there use-cases where
missing can't be completely replaced by
exists, or are there ways to mimic the behavior of the
null_value parameter when using
