Elasticsearch fundamentals

Learn how Elasticsearch and the components of

the Elastic Stack work together to solve a myriad

how to get data in and out of Elasticsearch.

Learn the basics of queries and aggregations.

Elasticsearch aggregations

Explore aggregations in detail, including the

different types of aggregations, how to perform

metric and bucket aggregations, and details on

how to use some of the more common


Elasticsearch queries

Learn how to write and submit queries, as well

documents is calculated. Learn the main

full-text queries available in Elasticsearch and

explore advanced options, such as configuring

fuzziness for dealing with misspelled words.

Learn how to combine different search clauses.

Understand the different components that

compose a search page and how to use them,

like how to highlight matched search terms in a

response, and how to perform sorting and

pagination of search results.

Elasticsearch text analysis and mappings

Understand how Elasticsearch mappings are used to define the way documents and fields are indexed and stored. Learn the difference between text and keyword, and how to customize mappings. Learn how Elasticsearch can be used as a pure key/value data store and how to deal with null values and coercing.

Elasticsearch nodes and shards

Learn why the cluster state is so important, as well as what master-eligible nodes are and how they work. Understand the differences between the different types of nodes and discuss some sample architectures. Understand how Elasticsearch scales and distributes data across a cluster. Learn details about distributed writes and distributed search operations.

Elasticsearch monitoring and troubleshooting Learn how to understand the health of your cluster and diagnose health issues, as well as how to allocate shards and diagnose shard issues. Learn best practices for cluster monitoring. Find out how to dig deeper into performance issues to really understand and resolve them.
