API Documentation

All the API calls map the raw REST api as closely as possible, including the distinction between required and optional arguments to the calls. This means that the code makes distinction between positional and keyword arguments; we, however, recommend that people use keyword arguments for all calls for consistency and safety.

Note

for compatibility with the Python ecosystem we use from_ instead of from and doc_type instead of type as parameter names.

Global Options

Some parameters are added by the client itself and can be used in all API calls.

Ignore

An API call is considered successful (and will return a response) if elasticsearch returns a 2XX response. Otherwise an instance of TransportError (or a more specific subclass) will be raised. You can see other exception and error states in Exceptions. If you do not wish an exception to be raised you can always pass in an ignore parameter with either a single status code that should be ignored or a list of them:

from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch
es = Elasticsearch()

# ignore 400 cause by IndexAlreadyExistsException when creating an index
es.indices.create(index='test-index', ignore=400)

# ignore 404 and 400
es.indices.delete(index='test-index', ignore=[400, 404])

Timeout

Global timeout can be set when constructing the client (see Connection’s timeout parameter) or on a per-request basis using request_timeout (float value in seconds) as part of any API call, this value will get passed to the perform_request method of the connection class:

# only wait for 1 second, regardless of the client's default
es.cluster.health(wait_for_status='yellow', request_timeout=1)

Note

Some API calls also accept a timeout parameter that is passed to Elasticsearch server. This timeout is internal and doesn’t guarantee that the request will end in the specified time.

Tracking Requests with Opaque ID

You can enrich your requests against Elasticsearch with an identifier string, that allows you to discover this identifier in deprecation logs, to support you with identifying search slow log origin or to help with identifying running tasks.

import elasticsearch

# You can add to the client to apply to all requests
client = elasticsearch.Elasticsearch(opaque_id="app17@dc06.eu_user1234")

# Or you can apply per-request for more granularity.
resp = client.get(index="test", id="1", opaque_id="app17@dc06.eu_user1234")

Response Filtering

The filter_path parameter is used to reduce the response returned by elasticsearch. For example, to only return _id and _type, do:

es.search(index='test-index', filter_path=['hits.hits._id', 'hits.hits._type'])

It also supports the * wildcard character to match any field or part of a field’s name:

es.search(index='test-index', filter_path=['hits.hits._*'])

Elasticsearch

class elasticsearch.Elasticsearch(hosts=None, transport_class=<class 'elasticsearch.transport.Transport'>, **kwargs)

Elasticsearch low-level client. Provides a straightforward mapping from Python to ES REST endpoints.

The instance has attributes cat, cluster, indices, ingest, nodes, snapshot and tasks that provide access to instances of CatClient, ClusterClient, IndicesClient, IngestClient, NodesClient, SnapshotClient and TasksClient respectively. This is the preferred (and only supported) way to get access to those classes and their methods.

You can specify your own connection class which should be used by providing the connection_class parameter:

# create connection to localhost using the ThriftConnection
es = Elasticsearch(connection_class=ThriftConnection)

If you want to turn on Sniffing you have several options (described in Transport):

# create connection that will automatically inspect the cluster to get
# the list of active nodes. Start with nodes running on 'esnode1' and
# 'esnode2'
es = Elasticsearch(
    ['esnode1', 'esnode2'],
    # sniff before doing anything
    sniff_on_start=True,
    # refresh nodes after a node fails to respond
    sniff_on_connection_fail=True,
    # and also every 60 seconds
    sniffer_timeout=60
)

Different hosts can have different parameters, use a dictionary per node to specify those:

# connect to localhost directly and another node using SSL on port 443
# and an url_prefix. Note that ``port`` needs to be an int.
es = Elasticsearch([
    {'host': 'localhost'},
    {'host': 'othernode', 'port': 443, 'url_prefix': 'es', 'use_ssl': True},
])

If using SSL, there are several parameters that control how we deal with certificates (see Urllib3HttpConnection for detailed description of the options):

es = Elasticsearch(
    ['localhost:443', 'other_host:443'],
    # turn on SSL
    use_ssl=True,
    # make sure we verify SSL certificates
    verify_certs=True,
    # provide a path to CA certs on disk
    ca_certs='/path/to/CA_certs'
)

If using SSL, but don’t verify the certs, a warning message is showed optionally (see Urllib3HttpConnection for detailed description of the options):

es = Elasticsearch(
    ['localhost:443', 'other_host:443'],
    # turn on SSL
    use_ssl=True,
    # no verify SSL certificates
    verify_certs=False,
    # don't show warnings about ssl certs verification
    ssl_show_warn=False
)

SSL client authentication is supported (see Urllib3HttpConnection for detailed description of the options):

es = Elasticsearch(
    ['localhost:443', 'other_host:443'],
    # turn on SSL
    use_ssl=True,
    # make sure we verify SSL certificates
    verify_certs=True,
    # provide a path to CA certs on disk
    ca_certs='/path/to/CA_certs',
    # PEM formatted SSL client certificate
    client_cert='/path/to/clientcert.pem',
    # PEM formatted SSL client key
    client_key='/path/to/clientkey.pem'
)

Alternatively you can use RFC-1738 formatted URLs, as long as they are not in conflict with other options:

es = Elasticsearch(
    [
        'http://user:secret@localhost:9200/',
        'https://user:secret@other_host:443/production'
    ],
    verify_certs=True
)

By default, JSONSerializer is used to encode all outgoing requests. However, you can implement your own custom serializer:

from elasticsearch.serializer import JSONSerializer

class SetEncoder(JSONSerializer):
    def default(self, obj):
        if isinstance(obj, set):
            return list(obj)
        if isinstance(obj, Something):
            return 'CustomSomethingRepresentation'
        return JSONSerializer.default(self, obj)

es = Elasticsearch(serializer=SetEncoder())
Parameters:
  • hosts – list of nodes, or a single node, we should connect to. Node should be a dictionary ({“host”: “localhost”, “port”: 9200}), the entire dictionary will be passed to the Connection class as kwargs, or a string in the format of host[:port] which will be translated to a dictionary automatically. If no value is given the Connection class defaults will be used.
  • transport_classTransport subclass to use.
  • kwargs – any additional arguments will be passed on to the Transport class and, subsequently, to the Connection instances.
