Partial workflow id match while using list filter

Hey, we are looking to get a list of all running workflows using temporal visibility and list filter. Our workflows have workflow id’s that look like abcd-1234-5678. We want to filter all workflows that start with abcd-1234-. As far as I can tell from the docs, this is not possible but just wanted to get a confirmation if i’m missing something?

That’s correct. WorkflowId is indexed with Keyword type which optimizes for exact match performance but lack of partial search support.

I’d like to correct this answer for future reference. Turns out we can apply lexical range on the Keyword type to achieve partial search, e.g.

WorkflowId between "abcd-1234-" and "abcd-1234-~"

Also, if you happen to have workflows with ID, e.g.


Search WorkflowId between "abcd197" and "abcd199" will return the workflows: abcd197, abcd198 and abcd199
