What are useful API requests for administration?

For administration and troubleshooting, these basic ones seem quite useful.

GET /_cat

GET /_cat/indices

GET /_search

Any advice on other API queries for sysadmins/devops?

Thank you in advance!

Hi learner,

All you need is listed is GET /_cat:


You can use parameter help to obtain the available headers, for example:

GET /_cat/health?help

then use paremeter v and h to filter:

GET /_cat/health?v&h=epoch,cluster,status

Hope it helps,


Thank you very much, Luiz!
