Chapter 38. ElasticSearch

ElasticSearch Component

Available as of Camel 2.11
The ElasticSearch component allows you to interface with an ElasticSearch server.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-elasticsearch</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

URI format

elasticsearch://clusterName?[options]
Tip
if you want to run against a local (in JVM/classloader) ElasticSearch server, just set the clusterName value in the URI to local. See the client guide for more details.

Endpoint Options

The following options may be configured on the ElasticSearch endpoint. All are required to be set as either an endpoint URI parameter or as a header (headers override endpoint properties)
name description
operation required, indicates the operation to perform
indexName
the name of the index to act against
ip
the TransportClient remote host ip to use Camel 2.12

Message Operations

The following ElasticSearch operations are currently supported. Simply set an endpoint URI option or exchange header with a key of operation and a value set to one of the following. Some operations also require other parameters or the message body to be set.
operation message body description
INDEX Map, String, byte[] or XContentBuilder content to index Adds content to an index and returns the content's indexId in the body.
GET_BY_ID Index ID of content to retrieve Retrieves the specified index and returns a GetResult object in the body.
DELETE Index ID of content to delete Deletes the specified indexId and returns a DeleteResult object in the body.
BULK_INDEX
A List or Collection of any type that is already accepted (XContentBuilder, Map, byte[], or String)
Camel 2.14, Adds content to an index and return a List of the id of the successfully indexed documents in the body.
BULK
A List or Collection of any type that is already accepted (XContentBuilder, Map, byte[], or String)
Camel 2.15, Adds content to an index and returns the BulkResponse object in the body.

Index Example

Below is a simple INDEX example
from("direct:index")
    .to("elasticsearch://local?operation=INDEX&indexName=twitter&indexType=tweet");
<route>
    <from uri="direct:index" />
    <to uri="elasticsearch://local?operation=INDEX&indexName=twitter&indexType=tweet"/>
</route>
A client would simply need to pass a body message containing a Map to the route. The result body contains the indexId created.
Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>();
map.put("content", "test");
String indexId = template.requestBody("direct:index", map, String.class);
