# #StackBounty: #elasticsearch How to get results weighted by references from ElasticSearch

### Bounty: 100

I have a dataset consisting of Notes referencing other Notes.

``````{id:1, note: "lorem ipsum", references: [3]},
{id:2, note: "lorem ipsum", references: [1,3]},
{id:3, note: "lorem ipsum", references: [2]},
``````

I want elastic search to use the references to weight the results, so in this case if I search for `lorem` I should get id 3 back since it has the most references. According to their docs, their graph solution does exactly this, but I also see examples where they are doing similar things.

But no explanation of how this is mapped to the Index. So my question is: how does one set up an ES index that uses references (indices)?
