elasticbackup is a set of two command-line tools,
that you can use to backup and restore data from ElasticSearch indices using
their scroll and bulk APIs.
elasticbackup is available on the Python Package Index, so you can just
pip install elasticbackup
To backup the data from an index "foo" on a remote server, "es-1.mydomain.com",
that listens on port 9200, you can run
elasticbackup es-1.mydomain.com:9200 foo
By default, this will create two files in your working directory. One contains a
JSON-serialisation of the index's mappings. The other contains a dump of the
documents in the index, serialised as JSON, one per line.
To restore these files to a local index, you might run
elasticrestore -d -m localhost:9200 myfoo
./elasticrestore -d address-documents-20210314.json -m address-mappings-20210314.json localhost:40509 address
