Console can help you format requests. Select one or more requests that you want to format, click the action icon (dev-tools/console/images/wrench.png), and select Auto indent.

For example, you might have a request that is formatted like this:

Console close-up

Console adjusts the JSON body of the request to apply the indents.

If you select Auto indent on a request that is already well formatted, Console collapses the request body to a single line per document. This is helpful when working with Elasticsearch’s bulk APIs.
