NAME

       Search::Elasticsearch::Cxn::LWP - A Cxn implementation which uses LWP

VERSION

       version 6.00

DESCRIPTION

       Provides an HTTP Cxn class and based on LWP.  The LWP backend uses pure Perl and
       persistent connections.

       This class does Search::Elasticsearch::Role::Cxn, whose documentation provides more
       information, and Search::Elasticsearch::Role::Is_Sync.

SSL/TLS

       Search::Elasticsearch::Cxn::LWP uses IO::Socket::SSL to support HTTPS.  By default, no
       validation of the remote host is performed.

       This behaviour can be changed by passing the "ssl_options" parameter with any options
       accepted by IO::Socket::SSL. For instance, to check that the remote host has a trusted
       certificate, and to avoid man-in-the-middle attacks, you could do the following:

           use Search::Elasticsearch;

           my $es = Search::Elasticsearch->new(
               cxn   => 'LWP',
               nodes => [
                   "https://node1.mydomain.com:9200",
                   "https://node2.mydomain.com:9200",
               ],
               ssl_options => {
                   verify_hostname     => 1,
                   SSL_ca_file         => '/path/to/cacert.pem'
               }
           );

       If the remote server cannot be verified, an Search::Elasticsearch::Error will be thrown -
       LWP does not allow us to detect that the connection error was due to invalid SSL.

       If you want your client to present its own certificate to the remote server, then use:

           use Search::Elasticsearch;

           my $es = Search::Elasticsearch->new(
               cxn   => 'LWP',
               nodes => [
                   "https://node1.mydomain.com:9200",
                   "https://node2.mydomain.com:9200",
               ],
               ssl_options => {
                   verify_hostname     => 1,
                   SSL_ca_file         => '/path/to/cacert.pem',
                   SSL_use_cert        => 1,
                   SSL_cert_file       => '/path/to/client.pem',
                   SSL_key_file        => '/path/to/client.pem',
               }
           );

METHODS

   "perform_request()"
           ($status,$body) = $self->perform_request({
               # required
               method      => 'GET|HEAD|POST|PUT|DELETE',
               path        => '/path/of/request',
               qs          => \%query_string_params,

               # optional
               data        => $body_as_string,
               mime_type   => 'application/json',
               timeout     => $timeout
           });

       Sends the request to the associated Elasticsearch node and returns a $status code and the
       decoded response $body, or throws an error if the request failed.
