A search request will return only the top 10 scored documents by default. If you want to return more then you can [use `"size"` on the request, and use it in conjunction with `"from"` for pagination.](https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/search-request-from-size.html)

Bear in mind that this is not an efficient way to deeply paginate a _large_ dataset; for this, you may consider using the [scroll API](https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/search-request-scroll.html) or [search after API.](https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/search-request-search-after.html)
