Pinned Query

Promotes selected documents to rank higher than those matching a given query. This feature is typically used to guide searchers to curated documents that are promoted over and above any "organic" matches for a search. The promoted or "pinned" documents are identified using the document IDs stored in the _id field.

Example request

GET /_search
{
    "query": {
        "pinned" : {
            "ids" : ["1", "4", "100"],
            "organic" : {
            	"match":{
            		"description": "brown shoes"
            	}
            }
        }
    }
}
