Term-level queriesedit

You can use term-level queries to find documents based on precise values in structured data. Examples of structured data include date ranges, IP addresses, prices, or product IDs.

Unlike full-text queries, term-level queries do not analyze search terms. Instead, term-level queries match the exact terms stored in a field.

Note

Term-level queries still normalize search terms for keyword fields with the normalizer property. For more details, see normalizer.
