Are auto-generated ids UUIDs?


(Serkan Camurcuoglu) #1

Hi,
I'd like to learn if the automatically generated document ids are unique
across totally different elasticsearch clusters. We are planning to use
different clusters for manual sharding but we'd like the document ids to be
unique just in case.

Hi,

Yes they are UUIDs. If required, you can also pass your own ids instead of
ES generating them for you.

Thanks,
Anand
