Tuning Query Results Order with Query_by_Weights
TLDR Nathan is trying to tune the order of results using
query_by_weights, but experiences a smaller impact than expected. Jason suggests trying
max_weight and sharing a snippet to further investigate.

query_by_weightsto try and slightly tune the order of my results when sorted by
_text_match:desc. I'm finding that
query_by_weightshas a much smaller impact than I expected.
My search has 10
query_byfields and returns 2 results.
Document X matches the query only on the 10th field. Document Y matches on the 7th, 8th and 9th fields.
Fields 7-10 are nested fields, in case that matters.
X = 578730123365711921
Y = 578730123365187659
X = 578730123365711993 (+72)
Y = 578730123365187699 (+40)
I expected bigger changes in score, given that I'm weighting field10 127x any other field. What am I not understanding correctly here?

text_match_type. Could you try setting it to
max_weight, the result is purely based on the highest weighted field. I was hoping to still search across all fields -- something like "Field 1 is more important than field 2 OR 3, but if both field 2 AND 3 match the query, that trumps field 1"
Regardless, I'll work on that snippet later today
