Way to search exact string?

See original GitHub issue


In kibana, we can search exact string by wrapping it by double quotation marks. It seems s = s.query('match', content="Donald Trump") is searching for Donald or Trump.

Using dsl-py how can we search exact string?

Hi, kibana uses the query_string query so you can have the exact same functionality by using that: s = s.query('query_string', query='"Donald Trump"')

I would however recommend more granular approach using either a phrase or terms queries - phrase (0) is useful if the string you are looking for is somewhere in a field, but not exactly the match, it will also work with type text (analyzed).

If you want to do true exact matching you need to use keyword type fields and a term query (1). That will do exact match against a field: s = s.query('term', full_name="Donald Trump")

Hope this helps

@balaa you cannot really have a universal search like that for exact matches since it depends on the mappings also you cannot effectively search for an exact substring. The best approximation would be to use a phrase query as mentioned.
