Can two documents with the same ID exist if they have different parents?

I tried to change the parent of a document, simply by reindexing it with another parent.

I then got the following:
curl -X GET 'http://localhost:9200/my_index/my_doctype/_search?pretty=true' -d '{"fields":["_parent"],"query":{"match":{"doc_id": "id1"}}}'
{
"took" : 1,
"timed_out" : false,
"_shards" : {
"total" : 5,
"successful" : 5,
"failed" : 0
},
"hits" : {
"total" : 2,
"max_score" : 11.163984,
"hits" : [ {
"_index" : "my_index",
"_type" : "my_doctype",
"_id" : "id1",
"_score" : 11.163984,
"fields" : {
"_parent" : "old_parent"
}
}, {
"_index" : "my_index",
"_type" : "my_doctype",
"_id" : "id1",
"_score" : 10.388675,
"fields" : {
"_parent" : "new_parent"
}
} ]
}

How can this be? can two documents of the same type exist with the same ID if they have a different parent?

If so, how do I delete one of them (the old_parent one...), but not the other?

Also, none of them is accessible by "get" now.

neither of the following returns any result:
curl -X GET 'http://localhost:9200/my_index/my_doctype/id1&routing=old_parent
curl -X GET 'http://localhost:9200/my_index/my_doctype/id1&routing=new_parent

Hello,

There can be different documents with the same ID if they have different
routing values. And child documents automatically get their parents' IDs as
routing values.

The fact that you can't retrieve them afterwards, even with the parent's ID
as routing value is a bit strange. Can you gist a curl recreation of the
problem? For me, this works:

Best regards,
Radu

A child is assigned to a particular shard based on the parent ID. If
you change the parent, then it tries to index that doc on a new shard
(potentially, depending on which shard the new ID hashes to) but it
doesn't know that it has to delete the old version on the old shard.

You have to handle this one yourself.

That's because you're using '&' instead of '?'

clint

If so, how do I delete one of them (the old_parent one...), but not the
other?

Thanks Raud and Clinton.
Together, you answered all my question :slight_smile:
