Operations on virtual indices

The plugin supports the following operations on virtual indices:

  • get mapping
  • get field capabilities
  • search
  • msearch
  • get
  • mget

Search requests involving a mixture of virtual and normal Elasticsearch indices (for example when using a wildcard) are not supported and will be rejected; it is however possible to issue msearch requests containing requests on normal Elasticsearch indices and virtual indices.

When creating a virtual index, the plugin will create an empty Elasticsearch index for interoperability with Search Guard and X-Pack; if an Elasticsearch index with the same name as the virtual index already exists and it is not empty, the virtual index creation will fail.

When deleting a virtual index, the corresponding Elasticsearch index will not be removed.
