Term level queriesedit

While the full text queries will analyze the query string before executing, the term-level queries operate on the exact terms that are stored in the inverted index.

These queries are usually used for structured data like numbers, dates, and enums, rather than full text fields. Alternatively, they allow you to craft low-level queries, foregoing the analysis process.

The queries in this group are:

term query
Find documents which contain the exact term specified in the field specified.
terms query
Find documents which contain any of the exact terms specified in the field specified.
terms_set query
Find documents which match with one or more of the specified terms. The number of terms that must match depend on the specified minimum should match field or script.
range query
Find documents where the field specified contains values (dates, numbers, or strings) in the range specified.
exists query
Find documents where the field specified contains any non-null value.
prefix query
Find documents where the field specified contains terms which begin with the exact prefix specified.
wildcard query

regexp query
Find documents where the field specified contains terms which match the regular expression specified.
fuzzy query
Find documents where the field specified contains terms which are fuzzily similar to the specified term. Fuzziness is measured as a Levenshtein edit distance of 1 or 2.
type query
