Multiple Filters Query


(Vincent Stevenson) #1

I indexed some movie data. Each movie has a Genre field that sometimes contains an array of keywords (ex: "Comedy", "Action", "Romance").

When I do a query:
GET movies/_search
{
"query" : {
"bool" : {
"must" : {"match" : {"Genre" : "Comedy"}}
}
}
}

The above query returns only movies that have only Comedy as its Genre, if the document's Genre is "Comedy", "Action", I don't see it. How do I do a search so that I can see all movies that have "Comedy" as one of its Genres.

Thanks!

I can't reproduce your problem with this:

DELETE test
PUT test/_doc/1
{
  "genre": [ "Comedy", "Action", "Romance"]
}
PUT test/_doc/2
{
  "genre": [ "Comedy" ]
}
GET test/_search
{
  "query": {
    "bool": {
      "must": {
        "match": {
          "genre": "Comedy"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

It gives:

{
  "took" : 6,
  "timed_out" : false,
  "_shards" : {
    "total" : 5,
    "successful" : 5,
    "skipped" : 0,
    "failed" : 0
  },
  "hits" : {
    "total" : 2,
    "max_score" : 0.2876821,
    "hits" : [
      {
        "_index" : "test",
        "_type" : "_doc",
        "_id" : "2",
        "_score" : 0.2876821,
        "_source" : {
          "genre" : [
            "Comedy"
          ]
        }
      },
      {
        "_index" : "test",
        "_type" : "_doc",
        "_id" : "1",
        "_score" : 0.2876821,
        "_source" : {
          "genre" : [
            "Comedy",
            "Action",
            "Romance"
          ]
        }
      }
    ]
  }
}

I posted json into the index incorrectly, sorry about that. You are right, thank you!
