Auto Formattingedit

Console allows you to auto format messy requests. To do so, position the cursor on the request you would like to format and select Auto Indent from the action menu:

Auto format before

Console will adjust the JSON body of the request and it will now look like this:

Auto format after

If you select Auto Indent on a request that is already perfectly formatted, Console will collapse the request body to a single line per document. This is very handy when working with Elasticsearch’s bulk APIs:
