I was experimenting with getting ElasticSearch up and running. In doing so I was using the Chrome Postman extension to make requests against my local instance of ElasticSearch and experiment with the API.

Here are the postman request collections that I used. This first one Localhost Specific Request Collection as the title states is specific to localhost and to port 9200. However I made another collection with the same requests that uses a Postman environment to allow hitting an ElasticSearch cluster not on localhost. This Request Collection allows you to setup a Postman environment with a host and port property that will change where the requests go. For more information about Postman environments see the documentation.

If you want more information on setting up ElasticSearch check out their Getting Started Guide. Red Badger has a good blog post on Getting Started with ElasticSearch if you want more instruction on getting up and running.
