Axon.ivy 7.0 - the Digital Business Platform - is out now...

Hello Ivy team,

Currently my team wants to use nested query in elasticsearch. Does Ivy support to search nested object in elastic search? Could show me how to configure to use nested query?

Thanks in advanced Lan Bui

We do not support nested queries over the search API currently. However you can use the following method to use elastic search query directly:

String elasticSearchQuery = "...";  // configure your elastic search query here!;

No, there are currently no plan to support more query features.

hi @Reto Weiss ♦♦

Thanks for your answer. We will try with raw query.

I have another question. If we use nested fields, it will limit the number of documents to 50. (Please refer "Limiting the number of nested fields" section at ). However 50 are quite small.

Elastic search still supports to config that number of documents by config index.mapping.nested_fields.limit ( ). Does Ivy supports to config that value?

We use a standard installation of elasticsearch in the Designer and Engine. You find it in the elasticsearch directory inside the Designer or Engine installation directory. See file /elasticsearch/config/elasticsearch.yml to configure this.

hi @Reto Weiss ♦♦

One more question, where does elastic search store index data in ivy?

hi @Reto Weiss ♦♦

Following this post, object must be index as nested object in order to search with nested type (use raw query as your suggestion) So we need to run code like this example here : It will update elastics search index table.

So how can i access to instance of elastics search in ivy to execute that query? i try with Ivy.repo().search(clazz).raw(query) but i think it's not designed for this purpose.
