  • You can search using keywords such as company or job title. For example, you can search for "Richard Branson Founder".

  • If you don’t know the full name of the person you’re searching for, enter other information that you know about them. For example, you can search for “Editor The Kansas City Star”.


Filters use document fields to establish filtering criteria.

To use a document field as a filter, you must first add its attribute to the filterableAttributes index setting.


This step is mandatory and cannot be done at search time. Filters need to be properly processed and prepared by Meilisearch before they can be used.

Updating filterableAttributes requires recreating the entire index. This may take a significant amount of time depending on dataset size.
