The _id field is not analyzed so you can only retrieve a document if the id matches exactly.

If you have an id field within your source with the same value as _id, the story can be different, but it depends on how that id field is mapped. Can you share your mapping?

thanks mr val you response my question,
i dont use mapping , but you're idea to create new field with same value as _id is good idea
but i must update my data one by one.
im new using elasticsearch but i read any article if you want to use mapping you must
reset your data and input again , it is right ??

but if there is no way again,
cant helped i must trying use mapping

You could do this easily using the reindex API:

POST _reindex
  "source": {
    "index": "source_index"
  "dest": {
    "index": "new_index"
  "script": {
    "source": " = ctx._id"

This will create a new id field inside your source having the same value as the _id field. However, if your _ids are of the form 001_employee and you're willing to look for all documents whose id ends with employee, you might want to change your ids to employee_001 instead as it is easier to search for prefixes than suffixes.

Does your index contain different data types? Why do you encode employee within your id?
