Arguments

  • collection: collection name
  • index: index name

Optional:

  • from is usually used with the size argument, and defines the offset from the first result you want to fetch
  • scroll is used to fetch large result sets, and it must be set with a time duration. If set, a forward-only cursor will be created (and automatically destroyed at the end of the set duration), and its identifier will be returned in the scrollId property, along with the first page of the results. This cursor can then be moved forward using the scrollSpecifications API action
  • size controls the maximum number of documents returned in the response

Body properties

Optional:


Response

Returns an object containing the following properties:

  • hits: an array of found documents. Each item is an object with the following properties:
    • _id: specification unique identifier
    • _score: search pertinence score
    • _source: validation specification
  • scrollId: the cursor unique identifier for the next page of results. Present only if the scroll argument has been set
  • total: the total number of found specifications (usually greater than the number of items in the hits array)
