Elasticsearch mapping _parsing_exception


I'm using ELasticsearch as docker . I havent created mapping indexes there .

I'm getting following exception

org.apache.spark.SparkException: Job aborted due to stage failure: Task 43 in stage 516846.0 failed 4 times, most recent failure: Lost task 43.3 in stage 516846.0 (TID 5945113,, executor 4): org.apache.spark.util.TaskCompletionListenerException: Could not write all entries for bulk operation [1/2].

What could be best solution?

Can anyone check on this ? Elasticsearch version is 7.3.1

I checked but it is giving some unexpected errors.

because of the dot in the field name. Is there a way by some POST/PUT call to allow dot in the mappings ?

Why don't you rename the name of dot-prefix field ?

i can do that. But looking for the property to disable the check . I found replace_dots_in_field_names/allow_dots_in_name which is default set to false. How can i update this for a given index without restarting elasticsearch ?

From v 5.0, the dots are pemitted in each filed and each step in path represents a object.
And your problem is field starting with a dot, which makes a object resolution ambiguous.I recommend you rename field.

Do we have an API to disable index on a field in index?

The "index" option for a field determine whether a field can be searchable(indexed).
