Arguments

  • collection: collection name
  • index: index name

Optional:

  • refresh: if set to wait_for, Kuzzle will not respond until the newly created documents are indexed

Body properties

  • documents: an array of object. Each object describes a document to create, by exposing the following properties:
    • _id (optional): document identifier. If not provided, an unique identifier is automatically attributed to the new document
    • body: document content

Response

Returns a hits array, containing the list of created documents, in the same order than the one provided in the query.

Each created document is an object with the following properties:

  • _id: created document unique identifier
  • _source: document content
  • _version: version of the created document (should be 1)
  • created: a boolean telling whether a document is created (should be true)

If one or more document changes fail, the response status is set to 206, and the error object contain a partial error error.
