Python - How to upload jsonl file to Elasticsearch

So I'm trying to learn how to use Elasticsearch but I'm really struggling. I've tried looking at the official documentation but it's really not helping me.

Basically what I'm trying to do is upload a jsonl file that has approximately 10,000 entries. I've tried uploading them by splitting the entries up and then doing

elasticsearch.index(index=index_name, body=data)

but I'm not entirely sure if it's working correctly.

This is a snippet of 2 entries from the jsonl file that I'm trying to upload to Elasticsearch.

Also, once I've uploaded the file to Elasticsearch, what would be the best way to double-check the file has been successfully uploaded?

Thanks for any help you can provide

Use the _cat/indices?v API to see what indexes exist in your cluster, you should see one that matches your index_name. You should also be logging in your app?
