Hello Charles,  Thank you for the suggestions.. Is it possible to provide a container -query example for this case.. I am trying to wrap my head around the concept and getting nowhere :).. Following is what I tried, and it does not work
let $search := "(username:WHITEMK) AND (concept.registrar: )"
let $options :=   <options xmlns="http://marklogic.com/appservices/search">    <constraint name="concept.registrar">      <container>        <json-property>registrar</json-property>      </container>    </constraint>    <constraint name="username">      <value>        <json-property>username</json-property>        <term-option>case-insensitive</term-option>        <term-option>wildcarded</term-option>      </value>    </constraint>    <return-facets>false</return-facets>    <return-values>false</return-values>    <return-constraints>false</return-constraints>    <return-frequencies>false</return-frequencies>    <return-qtext>false</return-qtext>    <search-option>unfiltered</search-option>    <search-option>unfaceted</search-option>    <search-option>format-json</search-option>    <search-option>score-simple</search-option>  </options>
let $start := 1let $page-length :=10000
return search:search($search, $options, $start, $page-length)

Hello Ravi,

Your guess is correct -- json-property can not be used for nested elements.

You can add additional query terms to limit the search to 'registrar', like a container-query

(that would be a runtime additional query to AND with the bare json-property)

or if you can use a path range index (wouldn't be for matches and wildcards though),

a path range index with path definition  registrar/username would match the location you have.

Not sure how helpful this response is though..
