Please help me, if someone face this issue.

"created":false is telling you that the doc with that ID already existed in the elasticsearch index so it was not created but was effectively replaced with the newly supplied version of the doc.
As can be seen in the response this was version 3 of this doc.

Thanks you Mark for your response...

Let me explain the requirement in detail

First I am creating a index after that I am indexing document which is working fine first time on all extensions including .docx After that I am deleting the index from document via DeleteByQuery plugin which is showing the indexed deleted successfully.
After that when I am trying to indexed same document again then it is returning "created": false only for .docx.

As you have mention that "created":false return once index is already exists that mean this could be the issue with DeleteByQuery plugin to deleting the .docx indexed document or the way of implementation I am doing.

Below are the code which is using to delete indexed on document.

var response = this._client.DeleteByQuery("MyIndex", typeof(IndexedDocument), d => d.Query(q => q.QueryString(qs => qs.Query(@"F:\TestFile.docx"))));

Please suggest if I am doing anything wrong.

thanks you

QueryString has a syntax of it's own. The query string you passed is saying "find the document with the field called "F" and the value "\TestFile.docx" . Colons have meaning in that language [1]
You need to use a query expression e.g. term query that does not use special characters as search operators.

@Mark_Harwood I have tries the same for the other extensions this is working fine i.e. F:\TestFile.docx , .F:\PdfTestFile.pdf, F:\XlsxTestFile.xlsx, F:\TestFiletext.txt etc

It is only creating problem for the .docx files.


That doesn't change my recommendation. If you're deleting things using query_string queries and you're passing those unescaped strings then you are almost certainly not deleting what you think you are deleting.

Then what else we can pass in QueryString apart from filepath that I am passing currently in to it.

QueryString is a language designed for power-users to write complex query strings e.g. patent searches involving boolean logic, fields, proximity operators, fuzzy operators, grouping range queries etc.

You want an exact match on a filename. This is a very different use case so you need to use a different form of exact-matching query expression with no fancy operators.

That is the fundamental difference between the term query and the query_string query and the docs I linked to explain this in more detail.
