The right way to do a search with a lot (>1000) of keywords


#1

Hi,

I'm planning on doing a search with a lot of keywords. I'm rather new to elasticsearch and the way I would do it would be:

GET /my_index/my_type/_search
{
  "query": {
    "bool": {
      "should": [
                  { "match": { 
                        "title": {
                             "query": "superKeyword1 superKeyword2", "boost": 2
                             } 
                         }
                  },
                  { "match": { 
                         "content": { "keyword1 keyword2 [...] keyword1000"}
                         }
                  },
            ]
       }
   }
}

My question is: Is this the right way for doing such a query with 1000+ keywords (especially in regard to the performances)?

One use case could be: I have a contact list of 1000 people with first name, last name and email. I want to search my documents for the ones that potentially mention people in my contact list
