I haven't been able to find a way to tell ES to use the _id property in my
source instead of auto-generating one.
I think my use case justifies a need for this. I write all of my indexed
JSON objects to S3 for backup purposes. When I read these files out of S3, I
read them into a byte array and I would like to directly index these values.
However, if I create my IndexRequest without specifying an index, I was
hoping that ES would use the _id value from my source. Instead, ES generates
a new id and compares it to my source's id and tells me there is a mismatch.
Is there an option to change this behavior?
