Elasticsearch query examplesedit

Elastic APM data is stored in Data streams.

The following examples enable you to interact with Elasticsearch’s REST API. One possible way to do this is using Kibana’s Dev Tools console.

Data streams, templates, and index-level operations can also be manged via Kibana’s Index management panel.

To see an overview of existing data streams, run:

GET /_data_stream/*apm*

To query a specific event type, for example, application traces:

GET traces-apm*/_search

If you are interested in the settings and mappings of the Elastic APM indices, first, run a query to find template names:

GET _cat/templates/*apm*

Then, retrieve the specific template you are interested in:

GET  /_template/your-template-name
