Query string length limit


(Robbie) #1

Hi,
Could you clarify if there is a length limitation on the query string in
ElasticSearch? Specifically, if I have a query such as below, will there be
any issues? What is the max length that can be provided and is it
configurable?

Thanks!

{
"query_string" : {
"fields" : ["content"],
"query" : "this OR that OR abc OR ........<20000 characters> OR thus",
}
}

Hello Robbie ,

There is a limit on the query length or rather query terms.
Default value is 1024 , you can change it using the following -

index:
query:
bool:
max_clause_count: 10240

Thanks
Vineeth
