Multiple Indicesedit

Most APIs that refer to an index parameter support execution across multiple indices, using simple test1,test2,test3 notation (or _all for all indices). It also support wildcards, for example: test*, and the ability to "add" (+) and "remove" (-), for example: +test*,-test3.

All multi indices API support the ignore_indices option. Setting it to missing will cause indices that do not exists to be ignored from the execution. By default, when it’s not set, the request will fail.


Single index APIs such as the Document APIs and the single-index alias APIs do not support multiple indices.
