Get Service Accounts APIedit

Get Service Accounts Requestedit

Retrieving a service account can be performed by setting the namespace and service-name on GetServiceAccountsRequest:

final GetServiceAccountsRequest getServiceAccountsRequest = new GetServiceAccountsRequest("elastic", "fleet-server");

Retrieving service accounts belong to a namespace can be performed by just setting the namespace on GetServiceAccountsRequest:

final GetServiceAccountsRequest getServiceAccountsRequest = new GetServiceAccountsRequest("elastic");

Retrieving all service accounts can be performed without specifying either namespace or service-name on GetServiceAccountsRequest:

final GetServiceAccountsRequest getServiceAccountsRequest = new GetServiceAccountsRequest();

Synchronous executionedit

When executing a GetServiceAccountsRequest in the following manner, the client waits for the GetServiceAccountsResponse to be returned before continuing with code execution:

final GetServiceAccountsResponse getServiceAccountsResponse =, RequestOptions.DEFAULT);

Synchronous calls may throw an IOException in case of either failing to parse the REST response in the high-level REST client, the request times out or similar cases where there is no response coming back from the server.

In cases where the server returns a 4xx or 5xx error code, the high-level client tries to parse the response body error details instead and then throws a generic ElasticsearchException and adds the original ResponseException as a suppressed exception to it.

Asynchronous executionedit

Executing a GetServiceAccountsRequest can also be done in an asynchronous fashion so that the client can return directly. Users need to specify how the response or potential failures will be handled by passing the request and a listener to the asynchronous get-service-accounts method:, RequestOptions.DEFAULT, listener); 

The GetServiceAccountsRequest to execute and the ActionListener to use when the execution completes

The asynchronous method does not block and returns immediately. Once it is completed the ActionListener is called back using the onResponse method if the execution successfully completed or using the onFailure method if it failed. Failure scenarios and expected exceptions are the same as in the synchronous execution case.

A typical listener for get-service-accounts looks like:

listener = new ActionListener<GetServiceAccountsResponse>() {
    public void onResponse(GetServiceAccountsResponse getServiceAccountsResponse) {

    public void onFailure(Exception e) {

Called when the execution is successfully completed.

Called when the whole GetServiceAccountsRequest fails.

Get Service Accounts Responseedit

The returned GetServiceAccountsResponse allows getting information about the retrieved service accounts as follows.

final ServiceAccountInfo serviceAccountInfo = getServiceAccountsResponse.getServiceAccountInfos().get(0);
