elastic term frequency query

Ivan Zinchenko
Hi everyone,

anybody had to deal with the type of term frequency queries like: "match documents that have W word in F field at least N times"?
seems like dismax is not the right medicine here, and there are no dedicated term freq query as far as i know.

i actually managed to do that using span query, for example - match 'word' in 'field' at least 3 times:
{
"span_near": {
    "clauses": [
        {
            "span_term": {
                "field": "word"
            }
        },
        {
            "span_term": {
                "field": "word"
            }
        },
        {
            "span_term": {
                "field": "word"
            }
        }
    ],
    "slop": 2147483647,
    "in_order": true
}
}

is this the only way of doing that, optimal way? or am i missing something?

Thx.
