Delete all entries from a type


(bruskie24) #1

Is there a method of deleting all entries in a specific type in an Index without deleting the whole type and also preserving the mapping for that type? I want to clear out a type without having to reindex or remove the type. Is this possible? I've tried variations of match_all and wildcard queries and haven't had any luck.

Right now I'm trying
curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/index/type/_query?q=_id:*', and it seems to return successful in the terminal window, but doesn't actually delete the entries in my type.

May be this?

curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/index/type/_query?q=_type:type'
