Subject Re: access to joined documents
Date Wed, 14 Nov 2018 14:10:10 GMT
Hi Mike,

The best approach would be to run the query again indeed since the
join is performed in a lossy way: we record score contributions but
not which documents contributed to the score. For instance this is
what the inner_hits feature of Elasticsearch does when used with
query-time joins.
