Is it possible to add support for setting "size": 0 to simple Term Facets in order to return all terms matching the hits?
This should be similar to the TermsStats Facet api.
Yes, its definitely possible. I plan to do some refactoring in this area, once its done, we can then add this.
Great, keep up the good work :)
Just wanted to give a big thumb up (two, even!) to this idea.
also, when implemented this might also close #1530

Loving elasticsearch... I would really benefit from this feature. Any update on the status of this issue?
Really just looking for a way to ask for all facets to be returned... Perhaps omitting the the size param or having it set to all. Right now I have it set to a really high number. See: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12285371/elasticsearch-number-of-facets-returned
Why is this issue open and documentation says: "The size parameter controls how many facet entries will be returned. It defaults to 10. Setting it to 0 will return all terms matching the hits"?
What is the truly behavior?
@jperelli the docs you're looking at are for the terms stats facet, not the terms facet: in the terms facet setting size to 0 just gives you no terms back.
You are right, in a closer look, I confused this issue with that part of the docs. Sorry!
Fellows, just an update, its high on our prio list!, we are going to go through the mentioned refactoring and implement it. Its simpler now with Lucene 4 upgrade effectively done.
Isn't this already implemented with the "all_terms" option?
Since there is a "size" field, is it possible to also have a "from" field to paginate through facets?
Any updates? @kimchy said about priority list 11 months ago :)
I noticed weird thing today: all_terms with terms_stats returns all terms, but with terms facet you should specify size explicitly.
I guess this is not going to happen, aggregations are coming.
+1 to this. I don't think all_terms works as advertised at http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/search-facets-terms-facet.html
This feature has been implemented on aggregations (#4837). I am closing this issue as we are not going to modify facets anymore in order to focus on aggregations.
