Is querying indexes deprecated?

Can anyone clarify what the future for manual indexes is, as the current state of code/docs is a bit confusing…

We’ve got an automatic index that we’re querying directly , e.g. using the syntax below (or variants):

SELECT COUNT(*) AS size FROM INDEX:

This triggers the “Manual indexes are deprecated and will be removed” warning, but this is for an automatic index.
The docs at Indexing · OrientDB Manual are silent on deprecation of any of the direct index queries.

Is the intention that direct query of indexes is also deprecated and will be removed, or just the manual management of indexes?

Hi @timw

The deprecation is mainly intended to remove manual indexes, but the querying of indexes is part of the query language, so for now it’s not a target for removal

Thanks
