Arguments

conn

an Elasticsearch connection object, see connect()

parse

(logical) Parse to a data.frame or not. Default: FALSE

...

Curl args passed on to crul::HttpClient

verbose

(logical) If TRUE (default) the url call used printed to console

index

(character) Index name

h

(character) Fields to return

help

(logical) Output available columns, and their meanings

bytes

(logical) Give numbers back machine friendly. Default: FALSE

expand_wildcards

(character) Whether to expand wildcard expression to concrete indices that are open, closed or both. Valid choices: 'open', 'closed', 'hidden', 'none', 'all'. default: 'all'. Available in ES >= v7.7

fields

(character) Fields to return, only used with fielddata

Details

See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/cat.html for the cat API documentation.

Note how cat_() has an underscore at the end to avoid conflict with the function base::cat() in base R.
