elasticsearch.exceptions.RequestError [illegal_argument_exception]

I am getting this exception after a while when i try to append JSON document under same ID in the Elasticsearch index

How my data is getting appended.

id : 1234

My code snippet:
es.update(index=NEW_INDEX, id=source_id, body={"script": {
"lang": "painless",
"inline": "ctx._source.{}.CNT += params.CNT".format(StudentID),
"params": {
"CNT": 1

My exception :

Traceback (most recent call last):

"uuid": packet_dict

Code seems to work for sometime then produces the above exception.

do you have a full exception?

You can also add parameters to get a full exception. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/7.1/common-options.html#common-options-error-options

Also, a fully fledged example using curl or the console tools syntax would help a lot, as this would allow far more people to reproduce it.

Thank you!

I have found the actual issue in Elastic search log. It's total fields limit in index has exceeded 1000.
Is there a way to update my index with new limit ? I am currently using elastic search python api

And you guys set the limit for a reason. I would like know the reason behind it. Thanks


see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/master/mapping.html#mapping-limit-settings

If you have further questions, please go ahead :slight_smile:


Thanks Alex. It's clear now.
