Hybrid searches missing inner_hits results

Describe the issue:
When running a hybrid search, the inner_hits are not being returned from the inner queries. Running the individual queries correctly returns the inner_hits results, but when I merge the queries to use a hybrid search, the inner_hits are no longer returned with the results.

In my specific use case, I’m trying to return the inner_hits for a nested object, so I can relay to the user which specific item caused the match.

Is there a way to get a Hybrid search to return the inner_hits results?

Or is the an alternative way to generate a “hybrid” result that does not use the actual hybrid query type?

NOTE — There is a Github issue filed for this:

Hello Dan,

Hybrid query does not support inner_hits results as of now. Team will review if implementation of this feature is feasible, and if yes then team will assign a proper priority. Please use mentioned GH issue to track the progress.
