Subject Re: Query documents where Field Doesn't Exist
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 21:35:27 GMT
Hi Adrien, I had a chance to test and I see that there is one more
solution. For fields that we want to search for exist/doesn't exist add one
more indexed field, like "ex_field=1" and can search by: +ex_field=1 or
-ex_field=1. It works fast.
