Deleting documents based on timestam


(Raj Kumar) #1

Hello Experts,

I want to delete some events based on time stamp, below once is the time stamp of an server event which unnecessarily pushed same data multiple times with in a minute, for a minute single time stamp with doc is enough and need to delete others.

2016-10-21T15:44:02.8364001
2016-10-21T15:44:13.8364025
2016-10-21T15:44:23.8364050
2016-10-21T15:44:45.8364052
2016-10-21T15:44:59.8364082

Hepl me to resolve this.

You could just search for these particular timestamps, get the ids of the documents that you want to remove and then delete them by id.

Thank u Adrien,

for fewer events i can search and delete but i have 1000's of events like this and because of this excess documents my index size is getting bigger. is it possible to pick a single timestamp and remove others.. ?

Maybe you could automate the process using scipting?

yes am trying via API/CURL but can not filter a single timestamp from multiple, for this i can differentiate timestamp with their seconds interval and keep any one record and delete others is difficult.
