Trying to query 1315 shards, which is over the limit of 1000. This limit exists because querying many shards at the same time can make the job of the coordinating node very CPU and/or memory intensive. It is usually a better idea to have a smaller number of larger shards. Update [action.search.shard_count.limit] to a greater value if you really want to query that many shards at the same time.

The error is pretty descriptive. If you wish to continue with the current number of shards than you should increase the limit, but I would first see why you have so many shards.
