Getting Documentsedit

Elasticsearch provides realtime GETs of documents. This means that as soon as the document has been indexed and your client receives an acknowledgement, you can immediately retrieve the document from any shard. Get operations are performed by requesting a document by its full index/type/id path:

$params = [
    'index' => 'my_index',
    'type' => 'my_type',
    'id' => 'my_id'

// Get doc at /my_index/my_type/my_id
$response = $client->get($params);
