Indices Queryedit

The indices query can be used when executed across multiple indices, allowing to have a query that executes only when executed on an index that matches a specific list of indices, and another query that executes when it is executed on an index that does not match the listed indices.

    "indices" : {
        "indices" : ["index1", "index2"],
        "query" : {
            "term" : { "tag" : "wow" }
        "no_match_query" : {
            "term" : { "tag" : "kow" }

You can use the index field to provide a single index.

no_match_query can also have "string" value of none (to match no documents), and all (to match all). Defaults to all.

query is mandatory, as well as indices (or index).

The fields order is important: if the indices are provided before query or no_match_query, the related queries get parsed only against the indices that they are going to be executed on. This is useful to avoid parsing queries when it is not necessary and prevent potential mapping errors.
