How to create a join when first search contains multivalues for single field?

Path Finder


I'm trying to join two searches where the first search includes a single field with multiple values. The matching field in the second search ONLY ever contains a single value. The search ONLY returns matches on the join when there are identical values for search 1 and search 2.

In other words if search 1 has a field named id, and contains field1=a and field2=b and the second search contains field2=b, results aren't looking as expected

The search will ONLY return results if search 1 contains a single value for field 1

Any suggestions on how to join a search with multiple values?

Use mvexpand to expand the multivalue field prior to doing the join.
