I would like to give parent/ child relationship between three different indexes,
where indexes are index1, index2, index3 with different types in those indexes..
May I know is it possible???
No you cannot.
Needs to be done in the same index, and specifically, in the same shard.
How to know that my data is in a particular shard? and how can I keep in the same shard???????????
where my settings having following information regarding shards as shown:
Wanting to have parent/child relations between indexes is, I think, a smell of a bad data model. It looks to me you are storing different entities in different locations. Perhaps you should aggregate those entities together.
With regard to your routing question, see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/indexing-parent-child.html
Then what about the shards as Mark mentioned???? May I know what exactly the shards do???
How can I maintain the data in the same shard and how to know that in which shard my parent data is stored..??????
And can we have more than one parent in a child type???
You can have one parent per child. It saves you the horrors of conflicting multiple inheritance.
Okay Thank you Patrick..
