Subject Need help with query syntax
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2017 20:36:19 GMT

I have the following use case:

I have two fields (among others); one is 'name' and the other is 'type'.
 'Name' is the field I need to search, whereas, with 'type', I need to make
sure that it has a certain value, depending on the situation.  Often, when
I search the 'name' field, the search query would have multiple tokens.
Furthermore, each query token needs to have a scoring weight attached to

However, I'm unable to figure out the syntax which would allow all these
things to happen.

For example, if I use the following query:
It would only return documents where 'name' includes the token 'america'
(and where type==value).  It will totally ignore
"+name:state^1+name:united^1", it seems.

This does not happen if I omit "type:value+AND+".  So, with the following
It returns all documents which contain any of the three tokens {america,
state, united}; which is what I need.  However, it also returns documents
where type != value; which I can't have.

If I put "type:value" at the end of the query command, like so:
In this case, it will only return documents which contain the "united"
token in the name field (and where type==value).  Again, it will totally
ignore "name:america^1+name:state^1", it seems.

I tried putting an "AND" between everything, like so:
But this, of course, would only return documents which contain all the
tokens {america, state, united}; whereas I need all documents which contain
any of those tokens.

If anyone could help me out with how this could be done / what the correct
syntax would be, that would be a huge help.

Much thanks
