Minimal Working example of Elasticsearch scrolling using Python client
# Initialize the scroll
page = es.search(
index = 'yourIndex',
doc_type = 'yourType',
scroll = '2m',
search_type = 'scan',
size = 1000,
body = {
# Your query's body
})
sid = page['_scroll_id']
scroll_size = page['hits']['total']
# Start scrolling
while (scroll_size > 0):
print "Scrolling..."
page = es.scroll(scroll_id = sid, scroll = '2m')
# Update the scroll ID
sid = page['_scroll_id']
# Get the number of results that we returned in the last scroll
scroll_size = len(page['hits']['hits'])
print "scroll size: " + str(scroll_size)
# Do something with the obtained page
