Parent Inner Hits

More info about inner hits is in the official elasticsearch docs

The parent/child inner_hits can be used to include parent or child. The usage of parent inner hits is very similar to that of nested inner hits, the only difference is that in stead of passing the path to the nested object, the parent/child type needs to be passed to the $path variable.

Simple example

    "inner_hits" : {
        "children" : {
            "type" : {
                "article" : {
                    "query" : {
                        "match" : {"title" : "[actual query]"}

And now the query via DSL:

$matchQuery = new MatchQuery('title', '[actual query]');
$innerHit = new ParentInnerHit('children', 'article', $matchQuery);

$search = new Search();
