# json/insert¶

Warning

This feature is in preview stage. MVA and JSON attributes are not handled yet.

Documents can be inserted into RT indexes using the /json/insert endpoint. As with SphinxQL’s INSERT and REPLACE syntax, documents with ids that already exist will not be overwritten. You can also use the /json/create endpoint, it’s a synonym for json/insert.

Here’s how you can index a simple document:

{
"_index":"test",
"_id":1
}


This creates a document with an id specified by _id in an index specified by the _index property. This document has empty fulltext fields and all attributes are set to their default values. However, you can use the optional doc property to set field and attribute values:

{
"_index":"test",
"_id":1,
"doc":
{
"gid" : 10,
"content" : "new document"
}
}


The daemon will respond with a JSON object stating if the operation was successfull or not:

 {
"_index": "test",
"_id": 1,
"created": true,
"result": "created"
}
