From Kibana devtools to Elasticsearch

Hello everyone.

I am very new to Elasticsearch and Kibana (in fact it is the first time I know the tools), so sorry for noob questions.

I can login to my kibana website ( using my username and password, and using devtools (Console) I can put a call like:

GET nxxxx-2010.01.*/_search
  "query": {
    "match_all": {}

And it returns to around 200K results (hits": { "total": 204575,)

Now I want to perform a same search in Python 3


es = Elasticsearch ('', httpauth=('username', 'password'))

page =
          index = ' nxxxx-2010.01.*',
          scroll = '2m',
          size = 1000,
          body = {
            "query": {"match_all": {}}

and I have the error ERROR:root:TransportError(302, '')

How can I transfer the query in Console Kibana to Python code?


is kibana or elasticsearch? It should be elasticsearch (the 302 is consistent with Kibana's root url).

The query looks fine, I'd try with some light cleanup and being explicit:

es = Elasticsearch([

index = also seems to have a leading space on the index name, i'd try removing that

Thanks for that, but now I have the error 404

Here is the full error log:
