Get Settingsedit

The get settings API allows to retrieve settings of index/indices:

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

Multiple Indices and Typesedit

The get settings API can be used to get settings for more than one index with a single call. General usage of the API follows the following syntax: host:port/{index}/_settings where {index} can stand for comma-separated list of index names and aliases. To get settings for all indices you can use _all for {index}. Wildcard expressions are also supported. The following are some examples:

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

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_all/_settings'

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/2013-*/_settings'

Filtering settings by nameedit

The settings that are returned can be filtered with wildcard matching as follows:

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/2013-*/_settings/name=index.number_*'
