index query [NOCONTENT] [LIMIT offset num]

Search the index with a textual query, returning either documents or just ids.


  • index: The Fulltext index name. The index must be first created with FT.CREATE
  • query: the text query to search. If it’s more than a single word, put it in quotes.
    Basic syntax like quotes for exact matching is supported.
  • NOCONTENT: If it appears after the query, we only return the document ids and not
    the content. This is useful if redisearch is only an index on an external document collection
  • LIMIT fist num: If the parameters appear after the query, we limit the results to
    the offset and number of results given. The default is 0 10

Return Value

Array reply: A list where the first element is the number of total results, regardless of paging, followed by each document’s id, and a nested list of the document’s fields.

If NOCONTENT is specified, the list just contains the total number of results, and document ids.
