I recently added a Parent/Child relationship to some of my types to allow me to add a layer of security implied by the search parameters.
Routing became an issue when I noticed that checking for the existence of a document requires the parent parameter if the type has a parent/child relationship.
This makes sense but at the same time is ridiculous IMO.
I have an ID, I'd like to check if a document exists by that ID, I understand shard routing, but is there anyway to get around having to know the parent ID in order to check the existence of a child?
I can perform an Id centric search and get the result without issue.
What am I missing, this is driving me crazy!?!
