Newb Question


(jamster) #1

Hi All,

Although I have been playing around with ES for a few months, I haven't
gotten too deep into some of the Lucenesqe customizations, as it's mostly
been good out of the box. But, I think one thing I am confused on is what a
Facet is. Sorry for such a generic question, but figured i'd put it out
there anyway.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi,

you mean how it is implemented in ES or what faceted search is about?

If the later then I think it is quite clearly explained in
http://www.elasticsearch.com/docs/elasticsearch/rest_api/search/facets/. If
you are after more general (less ES specific) explanation you can try
wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faceted_search

You mentioned that you had been experimenting with ES for few months, did
you run any faceted queries too? And the results are confusing you?
