elasticsearchHow do I remove an index in Elasticsearch?

To remove an index in Elasticsearch, you can use the DELETE API. The syntax for this API is as follows:

DELETE /<index_name>

Where <index_name> is the name of the index you want to delete.

For example, if you want to delete an index called my_index, you can use the following command:

DELETE /my_index

This will delete the index my_index from your Elasticsearch instance.

The parts of the command are as follows:

  • DELETE - the HTTP method used to delete the index
  • /my_index - the name of the index to be deleted

For more information, please see the Elasticsearch documentation.
