Convert strings to floats/ints at aggregation time?


(amol.deshpande) #1

hi,

Is there any way to convert strings to floats (and ints) when specifying a
terms or histogram aggregation ? I have documents with fields that are
floats and ints but are not parsed by elasticsearch as such.

I know I could change the mapping, but for the usage case that I have
(support extraction of arbitrary events from log files, just by specifying
fields to index with simple regexes), it would be a lot more handy if I
could specify something like "script : _value.tofloat()" when writing the
aggregation for the field.

thanks,
-amol
