You need to use Console, just paste the json in and you should be good.

I see and no GET/POST? Simply copy/paste, right?

It still needs to be a post. If you are using curl, just copy the entire thing in and it will reformat though.

Great...just last .POST to where I mean if you can tell me the entire query please? I know I am asking basic question but still I am learning and not aware of couple of thigs.

Thanks for bearing with me :slight_smile:

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/5.6/indices-templates.html has a fair bit of that.

But when you use Console, you are implicitly talking to the lElasticsearch cluster directly.

You cannot load a file, you need to insert the contents of that into Console.
