But before I post in thread my issue, thank you for opening this slack for your user !
I'm running Typesense locally (in a Docker container with version 0.23.1), and I tried to index a large JSON file with users data. I tried with auto-discover schema and with manual schema to create a collection, then injecting my document (everything went well at this point).
The issue is when I attempt to search in this collection for some document (for exemple by email field), I only get some result which start with my input, and not who "contains" my input. For exemple if I search "test" I should get for output document with email like "[email protected]", "[email protected]", ...etc but I only got something like "test@something"
Can you help me to understand what happen about indexing and how to solve it ?
