NAME

Elasticsearch::Transport - Provides interface between the client class and the Elasticsearch cluster

VERSION

version 1.05

DESCRIPTION

The Transport class manages the request cycle. It receives parsed requests from the (user-facing) client class, and tries to execute the request on a node in the cluster, retrying a request if necessary.

This class does Elasticsearch::Role::Transport and Elasticsearch::Role::Is_Sync.

CONFIGURATION

send_get_body_as

    $e = Elasticsearch->new(
        send_get_body_as => 'POST'
    );

Certain endpoints like "search()" in Elasticsearch::Client::Direct default to using a GET method, even when they include a request body. Some proxy servers do not support GET requests with a body. To work around this, the send_get_body_as parameter accepts the following:

  • GET

    The default. Request bodies are sent as GET requests.

  • POST

    The method is changed to POST when a body is present.

  • source

    The body is encoded as JSON and added to the query string as the source parameter. This has the advantage of still being a GET request (for those filtering on request method) but has the disadvantage of being restricted in size. The limit depends on the proxies between the client and Elasticsearch, but usually is around 4kB.

METHODS

perform_request()

Raw requests can be executed using the transport class as follows:

    $result = $e->transport->perform_request(
        method => 'POST',
        path   => '/_search',
        qs     => { from => 0, size => 10 },
        body   => {
            query => {
                match => {
                    title => "Elasticsearch clients"
                }
            }
        }
    );

Other than the method, path, qs and body parameters, which should be self-explanatory, it also accepts:

ignore

The HTTP error codes which should be ignored instead of throwing an error, eg 404 NOT FOUND:

    $result = $e->transport->perform_request(
        method => 'GET',
        path   => '/index/type/id'
        ignore => [404],
    );
serialize

Whether the body should be serialized in the standard way (as plain JSON) or using the special bulk format: "std" or "bulk".
