Most APIs that refer to an
index parameter support execution across multiple indices,
test1,test2,test3 notation (or
_all for all indices). It also
supports wildcards, for example:
*test*, and the
ability to "exclude" (
-), for example:
All multi indices APIs support the following url query string parameters:
Controls whether to ignore if any specified indices are unavailable,
including indices that don’t exist or closed indices. Either
Controls whether to fail if a wildcard indices expression results in no
concrete indices. Either
Controls what kind of concrete indices that wildcard indices expressions can expand
The defaults settings for the above parameters depend on the API being used.
