Facets and hits?

Member since: 2004

Hi, my Find skills are a bit limited, so I hope someone can push me in the right direction. 

Lets say I have a query that gets all "Categories":

var searchResults = client.Search<MyItem>()
    .TermsFacetFor(x => x.Category)

If I now want the 10 first hits in each Facet, can I extend my query to do that? Or do I need to write a subquery for each Facet?

    If you need to get the 10 first (order by something?) for X amount of facets, I don't think there is a way to do it in a single query.
    However, you could use multisearch to limit the number of queries. Here's an example:

                    var words = new List<string>() { "burger", "banjo", "water"};
                    var multiSearchQuery = SearchClient.Instance.MultiSearch<MyItem>();            
                    foreach (var word in words)
                       multiSearchQuery = multiSearchQuery.Search(x => x.Filter(z => z.Category.Match(word)));

    Thanks, I'll give it a try.

    Keep in mind that multisearch has a maximum of 10 queries, so if you go above that you'll have to modify your code to create more multisearch queries.

    If that is the case, I suppose Henrik's answer is helpful, as that means that you'll need to get more than 10 facets, which is the default value :-)

    TermsFacetFor(x => x.Something, facet => facet.Size = 50)

    So I gave it a try and it works. Feels a bit dirty though.. :) A question though. If I add 10 searches to a multisearch, I get 403 forbidden, saying that 10 is the maximum allowed queries. If I only add 9 queries it works. Is this by design? Or just a misstake?

    Sounds like a bug to me
