update documents by query via a POST request

Usage,
docs_update_by_query(
  conn,
  index,
  body = NULL,
  type = NULL,
  conflicts = NULL,
  routing = NULL,
  scroll_size = NULL,
  refresh = NULL,
  wait_for_completion = NULL,
  wait_for_active_shards = NULL,
  timeout = NULL,
  scroll = NULL,
  requests_per_second = NULL,
  pipeline = NULL,
  ...
)

Arguments

conn

an Elasticsearch connection object, see connect()

index

(character) The name of the index. Required

body

(character/json) query to be passed on to POST request body

type

(character) The type of the document. optional

conflicts

(character) If you’d like to count version conflicts rather than cause them to abort then set conflicts=proceed

routing

(character) Specific routing value

scroll_size

(integer) By default uses scroll batches of 1000. Change batch size with this parameter.

refresh

(logical) Refresh the index after performing the operation

wait_for_completion

(logical) If wait_for_completion=FALSE then Elasticsearch will perform some preflight checks, launch the request, and then return a task which can be used with Tasks APIs to cancel or get the status of the task. Elasticsearch will also create a record of this task as a document at .tasks/task/$taskId. This is yours to keep or remove as you see fit. When you are done with it, delete it so Elasticsearch can reclaim the space it uses. Default: TRUE

wait_for_active_shards

(logical) controls how many copies of a shard must be active before proceeding with the request.

timeout

(character) Explicit operation timeout, e.g,. 5m (for 5 minutes)

scroll

(integer) control how long the "search context" is kept alive, eg scroll='10m', by default it’s 5 minutes (5m)

requests_per_second

(integer) any positive decimal number (1.4, 6, 1000, etc); throttles rate at which _delete_by_query issues batches of delete operations by padding each batch with a wait time. The throttling can be disabled by setting requests_per_second=-1

pipeline

(character) a pipeline name

...

Curl args passed on to crul::verb-POST

Examples

# can be sent without a body
docs_update_by_query(x, index='omdb')
