Loading templates/mapping when initializing a elasticsearch server?


(Johan) #1

Hi,

I have a project consisting of 3 maven modules, one for specification, one for data node and one for master.
The data module consist of a config directory with elasticsearch.yml. This is as well included for the master module.

First when I googled for how to set a default mapping I found the documentation for an old version 1,6
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/1.6/indices-templates.html

Where it was possible to package the server including template files.

This does not seem to be possible in 2.4, Is there any other way how I should handle this?

The only alternative way to do this as I understand it:

  • start elasticsearch server
  • make a (curl) PUT request with a setting for the index or a template
  • index my document

Or is there another good way? And why doesn't it seem to be possible to have this in the configuration?
