Ok, I'm a elastic newbie (<8hrs and 100+ usages of "curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/_all'"...;).
I simply want to create a filter that searches the string content of a specific field (POND_NAME) and returns all records that start with "BABING". I've tried all the flavors of POND_NAME:BABINGTON* possible but none seem to work. What am I doing wrong? This should be simple!
