Full-text index restrictions¶
This document holds the restrictions for full-text indexes. Please read the restrictions very carefully before using the full-text indexes. For now, full-text search has the following limitations:
- The maximum indexing string length is 256 bytes. The part of data that exceeds 256 bytes will not be indexed.
- Full-text index can not be applied to more than one property at a time (similar to a composite index).
WHEREclause in full-text search statement
LOOKUPdoes not support logical expressions
- Full-text index can not be applied to multiple tags search.
- Sorting for the returned results of the full-text search is not supported. Data is returned in the order of data insertion.
- Full-text index can not search the null properties.
- Rebuilding or altering Elasticsearch indexes is not supported at this time.
- Pipe is not supported in the
LOOKUPstatement, excluding the examples in our document.
- Full-text search only works on single terms.
- Full-text indexes are not deleted together with the graph space.
- Make sure that you start the Elasticsearch cluster and Nebula Graph at the same time. If not, the data writing on the Elasticsearch cluster can be incomplete.
- Do not contain
\in the vertex or edge values. If not, a error is caused in the Elasticsearch cluster storage.
- It may take a while for Elasticsearch to create indexes. If Nebula Graph warns no index is found, wait for the index to take effect.
