Index template exists APIedit

Checks if an index template exists.

HEAD /_template/template_1


HEAD /_template/<index-template>


Use the index template exists API to determine whether one or more index templates exist.

Index templates define settings and mappings that you can automatically apply when creating new indices. Elasticsearch applies templates to new indices based on an index pattern that matches the index name.
