I'm experimenting with creating an index but using the strongly typed classes.
The basic desire is being able to specify an index WITHOUT using C# POCO document class. A tall order I realize since I can't use Mapping Attributes or Fluent Mapping or the POCO via the AutoMapper.
The problem that I'm running into is how to create a TypeMapping object successfully so that I can set it's properties and marry it to a TypeName object.
The code below does create an index (good thing) but I can't seem to figure out how to instantiate a TypeName object (bad thing). I know I'm being dense but I'm having a helluva time since the documentation doesn't actually address using these strongly typed classes at all (or I haven't found the doc pages yet).
Any help would be appreciated.
C# Code that I'm using:
var settings = new IndexSettings();
settings.NumberOfReplicas = 0;
settings.NumberOfShards = 2;
var indexConfig = new IndexState
Settings = settings
var indexMappings = new Mappings();
var aType = new TypeName();
aType.Name = "Index Column Name;
aType.Type = typeof(string);
// A basic object but has nothing defined in it and I haven't found how to hydrate one up via a factory.
var aTypeMapping = new TypeMapping();
var indexCreateRequest = new CreateIndexRequest(CurrentIndexName, indexConfig);
indexCreateRequest.Mappings = indexMappings;
var aResponse = Client.CreateIndex(indexCreateRequest);
And the index that's created:
