I want to query elasticsearch for exporting a subset of data to be able to import it into a separate elasticsearch instance, which is not connected. Also I need to export as plain text, that the exporter is able to double check data and to render personal data anonymous manually.
The output response for the _search looks like the following:
I want only to have the objects inside hits. I assume that I can just feed these objects to logstash for importing into the other instance.
Is there any option that elasticsearch is just delivering these array elements, or do I need to post process the results to only return the hits' entries?
