Elasticsearch plugin question regarding multivalue template variables

Not sure if it’s intended or not…

Say you have a multi value template variable $X with values of AAA and BBB selected and a query in grafana for elastic:
Item: [[X]]

This works… and the actual query in the header is something like:
{“query_string”:{“analyze_wildcard”:true,“query”:“item: (“AAA” OR “BBB”)”}}

But if I use something like this in the query:
Item: foreword[[X]]

Then it’s going to look like this in the query with multi value $X:
{“query_string”:{“analyze_wildcard”:true,“query”:“item: foreword(“AAA” OR “BBB”)”}}

No results… I guess it doesn’t work as I anticipated. It works with a single value. (Requires a refresh of the page though…)

I somehow assumed that the query would have been:
{“query_string”:{“analyze_wildcard”:true,“query”:“item: (“forewordAAA” OR “forewordBBB”)”}}

And that would have worked in Elastic.

Any ideas or comments if I’m completely wrong?

Grafana is not a sentient system and failed to understand both scenarios :slightly_smiling_face:

Multi value is for complete matches, not partial
