elasticsearchHow do I use the Elasticsearch API?

The Elasticsearch API allows users to interact with the Elasticsearch search engine using a RESTful API. The API can be used for indexing documents, creating and managing indices, and performing search and aggregation queries.

Example code to index a document:

POST /my_index/my_type/1
  "title": "Elasticsearch API",
  "text": "This is a guide to using the Elasticsearch API"

This will create a document with an ID of 1 in the index my_index and type my_type.

To perform a search query, you can use the _search endpoint:

GET /my_index/_search
  "query": {
    "match": {
      "text": "Elasticsearch API"

This will return any documents which contain the phrase "Elasticsearch API".
