Elastic Store Data

Hello @Suleman_Ahmed,

Welcome to the community!

Elasticsearch stores data as JSON documents. An Elasticsearch index is a collection of documents, and each document has a collection of fields. Each field has a data type, which indicates the kind of data the field contains.

Elasticsearch indexes all data in every field, and each indexed field has a dedicated, optimized data structure.

There are different field data types, and "text" is one of them. For example, you can index strings to both text and keyword fields, not only text.

Here are some links that might be helpful to get started:

Elasticsearch Guide (documentation)

Beginner's Crash Course to Elastic Stack (video)

Elasticsearch: Getting Started (webinar)

Hope it helps :slight_smile:
