Elasticsearch.js function for performing atomic alias remove and add?


(Brent D) #1

http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/1.x/indices-aliases.htmldocuments a technique to atomically rename an alias within a single API
call using a remove and add operation.

Is there a way to accomplish this same thing using a single
elasticsearch.js API function call? I know I could do an
indices.deleteAlias followed by an indices.putAlias, but that wouldn't
be atomic. It's not clear to me exactly what indices.updateAliases does,
but doesn't appear to be an atomic remove/add.

You are correct, the indices.updateAliases() method expects an array of
actions for it's body (as described on the page you linked).
