The FTS docs state “Full text search and Bleve expect dates to be in the format specified by RFC-3339”.
It isn’t specified if the dates need to be UTC or not (i.e. no time zone).
I have a FTS index on a single ‘datetime’ field.
I searched with “start”:“1968-05-11T04:00:00Z”,“end”:“1968-05-17T04:00:00Z”
It found a document containing “1968-05-14T04:00:00Z”,
It did not find a document “1968-05-14T00:00:00-0400”
Is that the correct behavior?
Thanks for your time!
Hey @jodum, you’re date range query should capture all documents that fall within the range specified by the query as long as the date is in the format specified by RFC-3339, which is a specific profile of ISO-8601 that is more restrictive (as mentioned here: https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/fts/fts-query-types.html).
As seen on the wiki page for ISO-8601, the accepted formats are:
Combined date and time in UTC:
So I’d expect a document with: “1968-05-14T00:00:00-04:00” to match but not “1968-05-14T00:00:00-0400”.
Adding the colon separator to the time zone data did the trick.
(I had encountered this issue before, but unfortunately had completely forgotten about it…)
