Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch cannot find the specified quote_analyzer in the query_string. The quote_analyzer is used to analyze the query text within quotes. The error suggests that the analyzer named in the query does not exist. To resolve this issue, ensure that the analyzer is correctly defined in your index settings. If it’s not, you need to create it. Alternatively, you could use a standard analyzer if it fits your use case. Also, check for any spelling or case sensitivity issues in the analyzer name.

 throw new QueryShardException(context; "[query_string] quote_analyzer [" + quoteAnalyzer + "] not found");
 }  queryParser.setDefaultOperator(defaultOperator.toQueryParserOperator());
