Riak Search 2.0 & Tagging

Hello Antonio,

Firstly, please always reply to the list and not via personal email.

In regards to your question, I wrote a test that showcases how to write objects with tags in pb for search: https://github.com/basho/yokozuna/pull/479/files#diff-f9f0e102b2a5208f41b2f304ada0ee5cR306 <https://github.com/basho/yokozuna/pull/479/files#diff-f9f0e102b2a5208f41b2f304ada0ee5cR306>. It’s a bit of a workaround, needing the ‘x-riak-meta*’, which gets stripped in preparation for query, but it does work.

Please make sure you’ve also created an index and associated it with a bucket_type/bucket, i.e. http://docs.basho.com/riak/latest/dev/using/search/#Simple-Setup <http://docs.basho.com/riak/latest/dev/using/search/#Simple-Setup>. To query, it’d be the same as in the docs (field:*query*): http://docs.basho.com/riak/latest/dev/using/search/#Querying <http://docs.basho.com/riak/latest/dev/using/search/#Querying>.

I can't find any documentation on Querying Tags, I have followed your example at: https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_... <https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_pb_socket.erl#L3348>

Here’s an example in the Erlang client: https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_pb_socket.erl#L3348 <https://github.com/basho/riak-erlang-client/blob/7487c90275c88dbe8ef4c2fed6540864364ca3d4/src/riakc_pb_socket.erl#L3348>.
