Unable to upload json file to elastic search

I am trying to upload a jsonl file to elastic search via _bulk api using Python. Below is my code.!


Data is having multiple json object:


# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import requests
import json

url = "http://localhost:9200/tweets/_doc/_bulk"

with open('bulk.json', 'rb') as json_file:
    for jsonObj in json_file:
        studentDict = json.loads(jsonObj)
headers = {
  'Content-Type': 'application/x-ndjson', 'data':'binary'

response = requests.post( url, headers=headers, json=data)


Please suggest me the solution for this. Thanks!

You are not trying to upload json, your data variable is a list, and you are trying to send this list to elasticsearch, which is not supported.

This is what you are trying to send:

[{json_object}, {json_object}, {json_object}, {json_object}, {json_object}]

You need to send in this format:


You will need to change your code.

The bellow line will convert a list wiht json elements into a string delimited by new lines:

bulk_data = '\n'.join(json.dumps(d) for d in data) + "\n"

I did not test it, but you could try to send this request:

response = requests.post( url, headers=headers, data=bulk_data)

But your problem is with your code, it is not related to elasticsearch, there are better places to get coding help.
