Get Indexedit

The get index API allows to retrieve information about one or more indexes.

$ curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/'

The above example gets the information for an index called twitter. Specifying an index, alias or wildcard expression is required.

The get index API can also be applied to more than one index, or on all indices by using _all or * as index.

Filtering index informationedit

The information returned by the get API can be filtered to include only specific features by specifying a comma delimited list of features in the URL:

$ curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/_settings,_mappings'

The above command will only return the settings and mappings for the index called twitter.

The available features are _settings, _mappings, _warmers and _aliases.
