elasticsearchHow do I update a document in Elasticsearch?

Updating a document in Elasticsearch is relatively simple. The example code below shows how to update a document using the Update API:

PUT my_index/_doc/1
  "title": "Updated title"

This will update the document with ID 1 in the my_index index, setting its title field to "Updated title".

Code explanation

  1. PUT: This is the HTTP verb used to make the update request.
  2. my_index: This is the name of the index containing the document to be updated.
  3. _doc/1: This is the type and ID of the document to be updated.
  4. "title": "Updated title": This is the field and value to be updated in the document.
