Get Mappingedit

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

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/twitter/_mapping/tweet'

Multiple Indices and Typesedit

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:

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_mapping/twitter,kimchy'

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_all/_mapping/tweet,book'

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


Added in 1.4.0.Beta1.

The API will always include a mappings section, even if there aren’t any mappings. Previous versions would not return the mappings section.

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_all/_mapping'

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_mapping'
