Retrieve multiple values from one field name


I have following data in elastic search

  1. Index: test-1.2018
  2. Field Name: "test"
  3. Field value : "Test" , Test1", "Hello", "Fellow", "And other values" and so forth ...

How can I retrieve all the field values of a field type named "test" ? What query should I run ? I read questions on this forum as well as docs. But it is not clicking for some reason. Any help will be appreciated.

curl -XGET localhost:9201/test-1.*/_search -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{
"query": {
"match": {
"test": "some kind of wildcard - may be "

Is there a way to get all the values of "test" field ? Please feel free to point me to right docs and will check it out.

Not all but the main ones may be...

You can do that with a terms aggregation I believe.


I am using 6.1 v of es and aggregation should work as you mentioned. But i wasn't getting the results that I wanted. I guess I should try again and see if I go anywhere. Thanks.

If you don't succeed and need help, please provide a full recreation script as described in About the Elasticsearch category. It will help to better understand what you are doing. Please, try to keep the example as simple as possible.
