Wildcard Query


      A wildcard query uses a wildcard expression, to search within individual terms for matches. Wildcard expressions can be any single character (?) or zero to many characters (*). Wildcard expressions can appear in the middle or end of a term, but not at the beginning. Please note that the wildcard query is a non-analytic query, meaning it won’t perform any text analysis on the query text.

       "wildcard": "inter*",
       "field": "reviews.content"

      A demonstration of a wildcard query using the Java SDK can be found in Searching from the SDK.
