Get Mappingedit

The get mapping API allows to retrieve mapping definitions for an index or index/type.

GET /twitter/_mapping

Before 7.0.0, the mappings definition used to include a type name. Although mappings in responses no longer contain a type name by default, you can still request the old format through the parameter include_type_name. For more details, please see Removal of mapping types.

Multiple Indicesedit

The get mapping API can be used to get more than one index with a single call. General usage of the API follows the following syntax: host:port/{index}/_mapping where {index} can accept a comma-separated list of names. To get mappings for all indices you can use _all for {index}. The following are some examples:

GET /twitter,kimchy/_mapping

If you want to get mappings of all indices and types then the following two examples are equivalent:

GET /_all/_mapping

GET /_mapping
