  • Login into your ElasticSearch sandbox
  • Make sure elastic search is running:
    sudo service elasticsearch restart

    curl -XPOST localhost:9200/orders/orders/2 \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '
    "id": "2", 
    "placedOn": "2017-01-01T00:00:00Z", 
    "status": "pending"
    curl -XPOST localhost:9200/orders/orders/3 \
    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '
    "id": "3", 
    "status": "shipped"

    -H 'content-type: application/json' \
    -d '
    "id": "4", 
    "placedOn": "2016-01-01T00:00:00Z", 
    "status": "received"
  • Confirm there are some records to search on:
    curl 'localhost:9200/orders/orders/_search?pretty=true'
  • How many documents did you find?
  • How do you know whether got all the documents or just first page of records?
  • How do you find all orders that were shipped?
  • What is the order of results?
  • How do you sort result using an arbitrary field?
  • Pick couple of options and run your sort query
