Dear GBIF API users,

I would like to get some GBIF index statistics, e.g., Is it possible to
obtain all indexed fields in the elasticsearch occurrence index? I
already tried to get the mapping

http://api.gbif.org/v1/_mapping?pretty and
http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurence/_mapping?pretty and I also tried it
with the search (http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search) and a facet
on _field_names. { "query": { "match_all": {} }, "aggs": { "Field
Names": { "terms": { "field": "_field_names" }} } } Unfortunately, both
doesn't work. Is there any other opportunity to get all indexed fields? Thank you and best regards,
Felicitas Löffler
