The create index API allows to instantiate an index. Elasticsearch provides support for multiple indices, including executing operations across several indices. Each index created can have specific settings associated with it.
When adding settings strip the
index. prefix. This applies to settings found in the
Index Module documentation.
var settings = new IndexSettings(); settings.NumberOfReplicas = 1; settings.NumberOfShards = 5; settings.Settings.Add("merge.policy.merge_factor","10"); settings.Settings.Add("search.slowlog.threshold.fetch.warn", "1s"); client.CreateIndex(c => c .Index("myindexname") .InitializeUsing(settings) );
