Use the Cloud Search Query API to set Suggest Filters to enhance Cloud Search results

What’s changing 

We’re introducing Suggest Filters for Cloud Search. Using the Cloud Search Query API, admins can specify a filter condition that will be pre-applied to keyword suggestions as user types a query. This will surface more relevant suggestions, helping reduce the time users spend searching. 

Who’s impacted 

Admins, developers and end users 

Why it’s important 

With suggestion filters, admins can configure suggestions based on the use cases for a given search application, reducing irrelevant suggestions. For example, admins can add a suggestion such as a country, which will surface suggestions based on documents that align the filters. 

Getting started 

  • Admins: See our developer documentation here and here for more information about creating a suggestion filter.
  • End users: There is no end user action required, you will automatically see relevant suggested filters as you type a query. 

Rollout pace 

  • This feature is available now for all users. 


  • Available to Google Cloud Search Customers
