Hi @Jonathan_Gautier,

What version are you running? npm list @elastic/app-search-node

Are you using self managed app search or saas?

Can you paste a snippet of code rather than a screenshot?


self managed app search

const {hostIdentifier, searchKey, endpointBase, engineName} = getConfig();
const AppSearchClient = require('@elastic/app-search-node');
const baseUrlFn = () => endpointBase + '/api/as/v1/';
const clientDirect = new AppSearchClient(undefined, searchKey, baseUrlFn);

  .getDocuments(engineName, ["park_zion", "does_not_exist"])
  .then(response => console.log(response))
  .catch(error => console.log(error.errorMessages))

I couldn't reproduce this:

var AppSearchClient = require("@elastic/app-search-node");

var apiKey = "private-u7sgy8ekgbhoeb8u3pgrot3g";
var baseUrlFn = () => "http://localhost:3002/api/as/v1/";
var engineName = "my-search-engine";
var client = new AppSearchClient(undefined, apiKey, baseUrlFn);

  .getDocuments(engineName, ["park_saguaro", "does_not_exist"])

Quick thought, you're not trying to use the node client from a browser are you?

FYI, you'd want to use the javascript client in the browser, not the node client. The javascript client is already a dependency of the search-ui-app-search-connector:

→npm list @elastic/app-search-javascript
└─┬ @elastic/search-ui-app-search-connector@1.3.2
  └── @elastic/app-search-javascript@7.5.0

This is for React project, i can use @elastic/app-search-javascript, but how to get one document ? Thanks

Just do a search and filter on the "id" filter.
