Get Index

The get index API allows to retrieve information about one or more indexes.

GET /twitter

The above example gets the information for an index called twitter. Specifying an index, alias or wildcard expression is required.

The get index API can also be applied to more than one index, or on all indices by using _all or * as index.

Filtering index information

The information returned by the get API can be filtered to include only specific features by specifying a comma delimited list of features in the URL:

GET twitter/_settings,_mappings

The above command will only return the settings and mappings for the index called twitter.

The available features are _settings, _mappings and _aliases.
