Filter Short Fields Index Stage

The Filter Short Fields Index Stage was renamed for Fusion 3.0; it was called the Short Field Filter stage in previous versions.

A Filter Short Fields index stage removes short field values from a pipeline document according to a set of filters where each filter specifies a field name and a minimum length. All field values less than the specified length will be removed from the document.

For the REST API, this stage type is "filter-short-fields".

Example Stage Specification

Remove entities in the author_s field that are less than 3 characters:

{
  "type" : "filter-short-fields",
  "id" : "short-stage",
  "filters" : [ {
    "sourceField" : "author_s",
    "length" : 3
  } ],
  "skip" : false
}
