Storing suitable document ids that matches percolator query

Hello there! I don't have good experience in using elastic and I want to know if my structure is reasonable and adequate.

I have "computers" index

  "mappings": {
    "properties": {
      "cpu": {"type": "keyword"},
      "ram_size": {"type": "integer"},
      "disk_size": {"type": "integer"}

And I created "percolator-queries" index to store different queries that is used to filter computers by different characteristics. For example, query that filters computers that have intel cpu and ram 32gb:

PUT percolator-queries/_doc/intel_32
  "query" : {
    "query_string" : {
      "query" : "cpu: intel AND ram:32"
  "computers": []

As you can see, there is array property called computers. I added it to store computer ids that matches to my query.

And then when I add new computer, I search if there is matching percolator query. If my new document suits to query I update computers property in matched percolator query document. (I add id of new computer to computers ).

POST percolator-queries/_update/intel_32
  "script": {
    "source": "ctx._source.computers.addAll(params.val)",
    "lang": "painless",
    "params": {
      "val": [id_of_my_computer]

With that structure I can just extract percolator query document by its id (intel_32 in my case) and return ids of suitable computers, then use returned ids for whatever I want.

Is that reasonable to use percolator index like this? Or there are other ways to solve my problem?
