Filtering strings by comparing them with greater or less than

I am using Algolia for a web application using the JS SDK and I am trying to filter by a string value using comparison operators like >, <, >=, etc…

I was expecting it to be filtering the strings by ASCII value like myId < “ba”

I tried solving this by using the following code:

return index.search(query, {
   filters: "myId <= 'ba'"
});

Expecting it to return only records with IDs like ‘acd’, ‘ax’, ‘ba’, …

But I got the error: filters: Unexpected token string(ba) expected numeric at col 13

My question is now: Is this even supported by Algolia or is there any workaround to achieve this?

Thank you in advance.
