Range Facetsedit

Warning

Facets are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. You are encouraged to migrate to aggregations instead.

range facet allows to specify a set of ranges and get both the number of docs (count) that fall within each range, and aggregated data either based on the field, or using another field. Here is a simple example:

{
    "query" : {
        "match_all" : {}
    },
    "facets" : {
        "range1" : {
            "range" : {
                "field" : "field_name",
                "ranges" : [
                    { "to" : 50 },
                    { "from" : 20, "to" : 70 },
                    { "from" : 70, "to" : 120 },
                    { "from" : 150 }
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}

Another option which is a bit more DSL enabled is to provide the ranges on the actual field name, for example:

{
    "query" : {
        "match_all" : {}
    },
    "facets" : {
        "range1" : {
            "range" : {
                "my_field" : [
                    { "to" : 50 },
                    { "from" : 20, "to" : 70 },
                    { "from" : 70, "to" : 120 },
                    { "from" : 150 }
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}

The range facet always includes the from parameter and excludes the to parameter for each range.

Key and Valueedit

The range facet allows to use a different field to check if its value falls within a range, and another field to compute aggregated data per range (like total). For example:

{
    "query" : {
        "match_all" : {}
    },
    "facets" : {
        "range1" : {
            "range" : {
                "key_field" : "field_name",
                "value_field" : "another_field_name",
                "ranges" : [
                    { "to" : 50 },
                    { "from" : 20, "to" : 70 },
                    { "from" : 70, "to" : 120 },
                    { "from" : 150 }
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}

Script Key and Valueedit

Sometimes, some munging of both the key and the value are needed. In the key case, before it is checked if it falls within a range, and for the value, when the statistical data is computed per range scripts can be used. Here is an example:

{
    "query" : {
        "match_all" : {}
    },
    "facets" : {
        "range1" : {
            "range" : {
                "key_script" : "doc['date'].date.minuteOfHour",
                "value_script" : "doc['num1'].value",
                "ranges" : [
                    { "to" : 50 },
                    { "from" : 20, "to" : 70 },
                    { "from" : 70, "to" : 120 },
                    { "from" : 150 }
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}

Date Rangesedit

The range facet support also providing the range as string formatted dates.
