I am interested in writing a set of queries that will search for emoji in the text (data already in the ES). What should be appropriate string to use to search in ElasticSearch? For example, I want to search for 'happy face' (). What is the appropriate query string would be -- below (replace "?????" with query string). Thank you.
So, I tried using corresponding unicode characters. ES returns no results. Despite the fact that I can see it has relevant data. Attached screen shots shows it (when "smile" is used instead of unicode. Just because it is part of the text) -
Check out sense result screen. I can see emoticons. But when tried with their corresponding unicode (\u263a and a couple of other also that I tried), ES didn't return any result. What would be the right query parameters, so I can search emoticon/emojis? Thanks.
