ActionRequestValidationException when attempting to set mapping

I am attempting to define a mapping. I am first creating a new index by
adding a document that doesn't contain anything specified in my
mapping/schema. I am using a bulk operation to set the mapping but I get
an ActionRequestValidationException error each time. Here is my JS code:

var mappings = {
"body": [
{ "mappings": {
"component": {
"properties": {
"classifications": {
"type": "string",
"index": "not_analyzed"
}
}
}
}}
]
};
client.bulk(mappings, function(err, resp){
// error appears here
});

The exact message I get is: ActionRequestValidationException[Validation Failed: 1: no requests added;]

Any help would sure be appreciated.

Hi Blake,

I'm not an expert in the JS client, but the bulk requests are meant for
indexing data. If you want to set the mapping you can do it in index
creation time or by using the dedicate put mapping API
( http://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-put-mapping.html
).

Cheers,
Boaz

Yea. Thanks. As you suggested, I bypassed the JS API and just did an HTTP
call. That worked. Thanks.
