Bytes can be at most 32766 in length

Hello World!

I'm trying to _reindex one of my indices, yet I'm running into following issue:

        }
      },
      "status": 400
    }
  ]
}

part of dest/_mapping

  "post" : {
    "type" : "text",
    "fields" : {
      "keyword" : {
        "type" : "keyword",
        "ignore_above" : 70656
      }
    }
  },

Please advise.

I guess you did not define the index for the destination index and you are then using the default mapping.

Thank you for quick reply!

I hit submit by accident without finishing writing my question fully) I now updated my initial question with relevant part of custom mapping that I use for my index which is called "dest".

What does this field contain? Why do you need a keyword datatype for this field?

html

I'm thinking now type keyword probably not the best way to store html...

Definitely not. What is the use case for this field ?

requirements of app is to store full html, in case of wrong parsing and needs to be reparse again

I'd use a text field with index: false. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/mapping-index.html
