Note: In the past months we have worked on the new Elasticsearch Node.js client, and if you want you can already try it by following the instructions below, while if you're going to use the legacy one or report an issue, please check out elastic/elasticsearch-js-legacy.


The official Node.js client for Elasticsearch.

Features

  • One-to-one mapping with REST API.
  • Generalized, pluggable architecture.
  • Configurable, automatic discovery of cluster nodes.
  • Persistent, Keep-Alive connections.
  • Load balancing (with pluggable selection strategy) across all available nodes.
  • TypeScript support out of the box.

Install

npm install @elastic/elasticsearch

Compatibility

The minimum supported version of Node.js is v8.

The library is compatible with all Elasticsearch versions since 5.x, but you should use the same major version of the Elasticsearch instance that you are using.

# Elasticsearch 7.x
@elastic/elasticsearch@7

# Elasticsearch 6.x
@elastic/elasticsearch@6

# Elasticsearch 5.x
@elastic/elasticsearch@5

Install multiple versions

If you are using multiple versions of Elasticsearch, you need to use multiple versions of the client. In the past, install multiple versions of the same package was not possible, but with npm v6.9, you can do that via aliasing.

The command you must run to install different version of the client is:

npm install <alias>@npm:@elastic/elasticsearch@<version>

So for example if you need to install 7.x and 6.x, you will run

npm install es6@npm:@elastic/elasticsearch@6
npm install es7@npm:@elastic/elasticsearch@7

And your package.json will look like the following:

"dependencies"{
  "es6": "npm:@elastic/elasticsearch@^6.7.0",
  "es7": "npm:@elastic/elasticsearch@^7.0.0"
}

And finally, you will require the packages from your code by using the alias you have defined.

const { Client: Client6 } = require('es6')
const { Client: Client7 } = require('es7')
 
const client6 = new Client6({ node: 'http://localhost:9200' })
const client7 = new Client7({ node: 'http://localhost:9201' })
 
client6.info(console.log)
client7.info(console.log)

Finally, if you want to install the client for the next version of Elasticsearch (the one that lives in Elasticsearch’s master branch), you can use the following command:

npm install esmaster@github:elastic/elasticsearch-js

Usage

You can find the full documentation in our docs website.

const { Client } = require('@elastic/elasticsearch')
const client = new Client({ node: 'http://localhost:9200' })
 
// promise API
const result = await client.search({
  index: 'my-index',
  body: { foo: 'bar' }
})
 
// callback API
client.search({
  index: 'my-index',
  body: { foo: 'bar' }
}, (err, result) => {
  if (err) console.log(err)
})

The returned value of every API call is formed as follows:

{
  bodyobject | boolean
  statusCodenumber
  headersobject
  warnings[string]
  metaobject
}

Client options

The client is designed to be easily configured as you see fit for your needs, following you can see all the possible options that you can use to configure it.

{
  // the Elasticsearch endpoint to use
  nodestring | string[];
  // alias of above
  nodesstring | string[];
  // custom connection class
  Connectiontypeof Connection;
  // custom connection pool class
  ConnectionPooltypeof ConnectionPool;
  // custom transport class
  Transporttypeof Transport;
  // custom serializer class

  // max number of retries for each request
  maxRetriesnumber;
  // max request timeout for each request
  requestTimeoutnumber;
  // max ping timeout for each request
  pingTimeoutnumber;
  // perform a sniff operation every `n` milliseconds
  sniffIntervalnumber;
  // perform a sniff once the client is started
  sniffOnStartboolean;
  // custom sniff endpoint, defaults `_nodes/_all/http`
  sniffEndpointstring;
  // perform a sniff on connection fault
  sniffOnConnectionFaultboolean;
  // configurethe node resurrection strategy, default `ping`
  resurrectStrategy'ping' | 'optimistic' | 'none';

  // enable gzip request body compression
  compression'gzip';

  nodeSelectornodeSelectorFn | string;
  // function to generate the request id for every request
  generateRequestIdgenerateRequestIdFn;
  // name to identify the client instance in the events
  namestring;
}

Request specific options

If needed you can pass request specific options in a second object:

// promise API
const result = await client.search({
  index: 'my-index',
  body: { foo: 'bar' }
}, {
  ignore: [404],
  maxRetries: 3
})

The supported request specific options are:

{
  ignore[number], // default `null`
  requestTimeoutnumber, // client default
  maxRetriesnumber, // default `5`
  asStreamboolean, // default `false`
  compressionstring, // default `false`
  headersobject, // default `null`
  querystringobject // default `null`,
  contextobject // default `null`,
  idany // default incr. integer
}
