Bulk Insert error recovery

hello all,

i am using elastic search bulk java api to insertion of record from legacy
db.
i am selecting 100 records per poll and inserting to elasticsearch.
it is working very well and without any error.

but was wondering that what if bulk insertion to elasticsearch fails !

i have seen the api and there is a method for checking that error is there
or not like

bulkResponse.hasFailures()

so do we have to insert entire bulk request again if there is a failure or
we can identify that out of entire request these are
the records which were failed.

Thanks in advanced

Hi Mohsin,

You can find out what item has failed in the bulk response.
You can iterate over the bulk response items and check if they failed.
Like this:
if (bulkResponse.hasFailures) {
for (BulkItemResponse item : bulkResponse.items()) {
if (item.failed()) {
// Do something... Use item#failureMessage() to find the cause
of the failure.
}
}
}
