Digging deeper into full-text search with Elasticsearch

A presentation at JUG Augsburg by Alexander Reelsen

This presentation covers a few search features within Elasticsearch, that you merely need when using Elasticsearch as a ecommerce or person/address search engine, covering

  • range_, date_nanos, search-as-you-type, flattened, vector data types and queries
  • Field collapsing, top hits, distance feature queries
  • Phonetic search
  • Enrich and Dissect Processors
  • Index Lifecycle Management

You can download all the sample snippets and try them out yourself in the linked gist or right into Kibana at https://gist.github.com/spinscale/8e393e2351b1b6d7194baceb2fe5fbd1
