Are you facing problems to include ManyToMany field in django haystack indexing? Then here is the solution.
Indexing a single valued field is not that much hard. When it comes for multi-valued field, a big question comes into your mind. In this case, index_obj=indexes.MultiValueField(indexed=True, stored=True) will help you.
Since we cannot assign multi-valued fields directly, include following code in search_index.py
return [index_obj.attribute for index_obj in obj.index_obj.select_related()]
Now, you have indexed your ManyToMany field. Then go to your views.py and find the ManyToMany object which belongs to search keyword.
index_obj = MultiValuedModel.objects.get(name=request.GET.get(‘SearchKeyword’)
Thats it…, Now you can filter SearchQuerySet() by index_obj parameter. This is how you can index ManyToMany field.
