How to retrieve list of IDs in an index

I’ve just created an index, it would be great if I could retrieve all the IDs in it, in order to only insert new vectors. Not obvious how to do this from the API docs?

Hi George, this isn’t possible yet. See this similar request and workaround to this. I’m sharing your post with our product team as yet another vote for such a feature!

Hi Greg, it’s quite a basic basic feature for an advanced commercial tool to not have. The sort of thing that makes using Pinecone feel like a much less polished experience.

We appreciate the feedback, George. We have a lot of great features in the pipeline, some of which we certainly wish we had sooner. If this is a blocker to you taking Pinecone to production send me an email ( and we can work with you on this.
