Subject Re: Phrase field matches not counting towards minimum match
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2017 09:43:14 GMT

mm applies to qf only and pf2/3 is about boosting results that are 
matched. What you can do is play with additional fields in qf and/or try 
making it work close to your requirement with autoRelax parameter. Note 
that in case of autorelax it might result in unexpected results if one 
field is using stop words and other do not or if different stopwords. In 
your case, manufacturer_stop would get single token so it would cause 
that any document matching that token becoming acceptable.

What you can also do is run stricter query and run followup query with 
more relaxed fields/parameters. You can run it also as a single query 
that is OR-ed, just make sure with boost factors that scores for first 
query are much higher then for second query.
