Hi,

What are the limitations on subsearch? Please give one or two, please? This is an interview question.

Regards

Hi @SumanPalisetty,

the main limitation is that from a subsearch you can have max 50,000 results.

Then, but this isn't a limit but a way to work, you must have as result only the fields you need to use for comparing with the main search and not all the fields.

Ciao.

Is this an interview you are going to or are you the interviewer? In either case, the limitations are reasonably well known and with a little bit of effort, I am sure you will be able to find the answer yourself. 😀
