Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products.

Python 2 is no longer supported by the community. We recommend that you migrate Python 2 apps to Python 3.

Functions

Caution: **This solution is no longer recommended:** Apps that use this API can only run in the Python 2 runtime and will need to upgrade to a [recommended solution](/appengine/docs/standard/python/migrate-to-python3/migrating-services#migration_paths_for_bundled_services) before migrating to the Python 3 runtime.

The google.appengine.api.search package includes the following function:

get_indexes(namespace='', offset=None, limit=None, start_index_name=None, include_start_index=True, index_name_prefix=None, fetch_schema=False, deadline=None)
