Constant Score Queryedit

A query that wraps a filter or another query and simply returns a constant score equal to the query boost for every document in the filter. Maps to Lucene ConstantScoreQuery.

{
    "constant_score" : {
        "filter" : {
            "term" : { "user" : "kimchy"}
        },
        "boost" : 1.2
    }
}

The filter object can hold only filter elements, not queries. Filters can be much faster compared to queries since they don’t perform any scoring, especially when they are cached.

A query can also be wrapped in a constant_score query:

{
    "constant_score" : {
        "query" : {
            "term" : { "user" : "kimchy"}
        },
        "boost" : 1.2
    }
}
