400 request with &#160 character


I would like to confirm the issue first before logging it as a Bug.
Using the simplest JSON structure is enough to reproduce the issue. ES version 1.6.0.

When a text value contains the character &#160 (e.g nbsp), the service returns 400 Bad Request

Is it a known issue or am I missing a config?

Many thanks,
BR, Marc

can you post an example of what you are doing? Are you using curl or another client?


I'm using a Java client (Apache core / client) and all requests succeed except the ones which contain this char.
When the char is removed, then the request succeeds.

Can you post an example that we can use to replicate the problem as well please?
