Checking if value exists in array (before adding-it)

Hi there.

I have a "user" document which has an array of friends.
I need to add/delete friends from that array.

I'm currently being able to add or remove, but problem is that if a user ID
already exists gets added anyway.
I need to perform a check before actually adding it (desiderable in one
operation "if (not_exists) add it" ).

This is my user object and mappings (and scripts).

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You can play with the 'ctx.op' field, so in your case, you can perform the
following update :
ctx._source.friends.contains(friend) ? ctx._source.friends += friend :
ctx.op = "none"

Thx Nabloom.

I've tried your suggestion with neither error or success.
This is the actual code:

{
"script" : "ctx._source.friends.contains(friend) ? ctx.op = 'none' :
ctx._source.friends += friend; ctx._source.friends_qty =
ctx._source.friends.size()",
"params" : { "friend" : "88" }
}

Am I missing anything?
I've tried even removing the friend_qty update operation, just in case the
semicolon was causing something unwanted (is that the right way to put
multiple statements?).
Version number gets incremented on every POST but no changes at all to the
document.

Have you tried with a simple if-else:

{
"script" : "if(ctx._source.friends.contains(friend)) {ctx.op = 'none'}
else { ctx._source.friends += friend; ctx._source.friends_qty =
ctx._source.friends.size()}",
"params" : { "friend" : "88" }
}

it can by the way avoid to reindex the doc when there is a noop.

Whooa!

It worked perfect!
Thanks Nabloom!

BTW: Do(es) you(anyone) have a clue why the ternary operator version hadn't
worked?

I'm completely new to ES (hence to mvel)
