Modifying Exhaustive Search Behavior in Document Retrieval
TLDR Laura inquired about tweaking exhaustive search parameters for document retrieval. Jason clarified that using
exhaustive_search: true considers all variations and prefixes but doesn't necessarily return a fixed number of documents. Laura acknowledged the misunderstanding.

exhaustive_search: truedoes… and that could lead to a large number of results
I assume you mean the 10K max_candidates value. It’s not the number of results, but the number of prefixes to consider internally. Only the matching prefixes will be returned in the results

Understanding Search Result Variations with Filtering Parameters
SamHendley faced inconsistencies in the number of documents returned when adding more filter parameters. Jason explained it's due to Typesense limiting the number of variables checked for better performance. Increasing `max_candidates` or enabling `exhaustive_search` can help obtain all values.
Querying and Performance in Typesense
Chris had a problem with a Typesense query not returning a match. Jason solved the issue by suggesting the `exhaustive_search` feature. Further performance and features of Typesense were also discussed.
Issue with 'max_candidates' in Prefix Search
Edward reported inconsistent search results when using prefix 'EXAM'. Kishore Nallan suggested using `max_candidates` and `exhaustive_search` parameters. However, `max_candidates` did not work as expected, and needs further investigation.
