Get Mapping

The get mapping API allows to retrieve mapping definitions for an index or index/type.

GET /twitter/_mapping/tweet

Multiple Indices and Types

The get mapping API can be used to get more than one index or type mapping with a single call. General usage of the API follows the following syntax: host:port/{index}/_mapping/{type} where both {index} and {type} can accept a comma-separated list of names. To get mappings for all indices you can use _all for {index}. The following are some examples:

GET /_mapping/tweet,kimchy

GET /_all/_mapping/tweet,book

If you want to get mappings of all indices and types then the following two examples are equivalent:

GET /_all/_mapping

GET /_mapping
