Use Case - Why document level meta data would be really handy:
- We store big document with lots of nested child documents, so updating a document is very expensive
- When a document is "synced" from a persistent data store, it often doesn't actually change. This is a noop in elasticsearch and very cheap
- If we store "lastSync" on the document a full reindex is always triggered and suddenly the load on our cluster increases drastically
Adding document level meta and having changing it not triggering a reindex would solve this use case.
In a previous thread discussing this here it is mentioned that there is already an open issue for tracking this requirement. However I wasn't able to find that on github. Anyone else have the link handy?
Would love to see this feature. Thank you very much for you time and consideration!
