See actual JSON from SearchRequestBuilder


(Enrique Medina Montenegro) #1

Hi,

I have sort of a complex logic to build a search request using the Java API.
I'm finding a corner case which is not working as expected, and I'm
struggling to figure out what's going on.

Having access or a way to see the actual JSON that gets sent to the ES
server would be extremely helpful. Is there any way to achieve this? In
other words, can I see the JSON being sent to ES from the Java API?

Thanks.


Convert SearchSourceBuilder to Json
(Karussell) #2

is this what you want?

public static String toString(ToXContent tmp) {
try {
return
tmp.toXContent(JsonXContent.unCachedContentBuilder(),
ToXContent.EMPTY_PARAMS).
prettyPrint().
string();
} catch (Exception ex) {
return "<ERROR:" + ex.getMessage() + ">";
}
}

Also, you should be able to use any HTTP sniffer (there is Fiddler on
Windows, and I'm sure there are counterparts on other systems) which don't
require you to change your code so significantly.

I forgot to mention that the object where I build the search using the Java
API is a SearchRequestBuilder.

You can get the internal builder that implements the ToXContent (which allows you to print it as json) using SearchRequestBuilder#internalBuilder.

Hope this code snippet may help you

try {
XContentBuilder builderString1 = XContentFactory.jsonBuilder();

searchRequestBuilder.toXContent(builderString1, ToXContent.EMPTY_PARAMS);
String s1 = builderString1.string();

} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}


(Enrique Medina Montenegro) #8

Eventually, this is what I used:

public static String toString(ToXContent tmp) {
try {
return
tmp.toXContent(JsonXContent.unCachedContentBuilder(),
ToXContent.EMPTY_PARAMS).
prettyPrint().
string();
} catch (Exception ex) {
return "<ERROR:" + ex.getMessage() + ">";
}
}

SearchRequestBuilder search = new ....

log.debug(toString(search.internalBuilder())

@Shay: would it make sense to add this to the SearchRequestBuilder class as
an aid to debugging? I can take over that if you want...

That way we could do simply:

search.toJSON()

Right, a simpel String toJson can help in debugging. Actually, it can help on any class that implements ToXContent.

Or even a log.debug() statement when executing it, for instance :wink:
