Max limit for number of search results

What is the limit on number of search results by Elasticsearch?
Is it 10,000? Which config parameter drives this count? Is it possible to export documents in terms of millions?

You can use:

  • the size and from parameters to display by default up to 10000 records to your users. If you want to change this limit, you can change index.max_result_window setting but be aware of the consequences (ie memory).
  • the search after feature to do deep pagination.
  • the Scroll API if you want to extract a resultset to be consumed by another tool later. (Not recommended anymore)
