What data type can be indexed in elasticsearch?

(Sunil Chaudhari) #1

Can we index any type other than the text? e.g. images, video, audio etc?
How can we achieve that? what kind of shipper is avaialbel for this?

see Field Datatypes for a quick overview about the supported types. There is a binary data type that can be used to store blobs like images etc... as Base64 encoded string, but most of the time I think its better storing binary data elsewhere outside elasticsearch and only store pointers to it, since binary data is not searchable and can increase your index size dramatically.
