In most cases each filter is followed by a counter which indicates how many results will be shown when you apply that filter. Those counters inform the user about their next move before they perform it. From a technical standpoint, there are a few challenges to those counters. To know the exact count we have to execute the search query again for each filter but with that filter applied. In a complex search application this quickly amounts to a large number of queries. Elasticsearch and relational database combination.

How we keep our Elasticsearch index updated with data from Microsoft SQL Server – Voormedia. My previous article became redundant when Elasticsearch announced the deprecation of rivers.

How we keep our Elasticsearch index updated with data from Microsoft SQL Server – Voormedia
