Default sorting of documents with equal score


Let's say that we search for "*" and get a resultset where every document has an equal score (relevance).

How does Find then sort the documents by default?

Is it by some id or some date?

There is no default sorting. The order of the documents returned can be considered random as it cannot be defined (however it is a combination of index/shard order so consecutive requests will likely list the result the same way but it cannot be determined by specific property values).
