Queries, secondary indexing, and full-text search for Redis

Discord Github

RediSearch is a source-available Redis module that enables querying, secondary indexing, and full-text search for Redis. These features enable multi-field queries, aggregation, exact phrase matching, numeric filtering, geo filtering and vector similarity semantic search on top of text queries.

Primary features

RediSearch supports the following features:

  • Secondary indexing
  • Multi-field queries
  • Aggregation
  • Full-text indexing of multiple fields in a document
  • Incremental indexing without performance loss
  • Document ranking (provided manually by the user at index time)
  • Boolean queries with AND, OR, NOT operators between subqueries
  • Optional query clauses
  • Prefix-based searches
  • Field weights
  • Auto-complete suggestions (with fuzzy prefix suggestions)
  • Exact phrase search and slop-based search
  • Stemming-based query expansion for many languages (using Snowball)
  • Support for custom functions for query expansion and scoring (see Extensions)
  • Numeric filters and ranges
  • Geofiltering using Redis geo commands
  • Vector similarity search for semantic search using exact and approximate algorithms
  • Unicode support (UTF-8 input required)
  • Retrieval of full document contents or only their IDs
  • Document deletion and updating with index garbage collection

For more information about RediSearch features, see the feature reference pages.
