Empty description field for tasks


(Dan Markhasin) #1

According to the docs, setting the detailed parameter on a request to _tasks API will return a description for each task - but when I set the parameter, even though the "description" field exists in the response, it is always empty.
I assume that not all tasks have a description, but according to the docs at least _bulk tasks should have a description:

"The new description field contains human readable text that identifies the particular request that the task is performing such as identifying the search request being performed by a search task like the example above. Other kinds of task have have different descriptions, like _reindex which has the search and the destination, or _bulk which just has the number of requests and the destination indices."

However, even for bulk tasks, there is no description.. is this a bug in ES (I am using 5.4.0) or in the docs?

"tasks": {
"tGq_571FSkehKjbM_rHsUQ:225749430": {
"node": "tGq_571FSkehKjbM_rHsUQ",
"id": 225749430,
"type": "transport",
"action": "indices:data/write/bulk",
"description": "",
"start_time_in_millis": 1494855256145,
"running_time_in_nanos": 49847225,
"cancellable": false
},
"tGq_571FSkehKjbM_rHsUQ:225749433": {
"node": "tGq_571FSkehKjbM_rHsUQ",
"id": 225749433,
"type": "transport",
"action": "indices:data/write/bulk",
"description": "",
"start_time_in_millis": 1494855256151,
"running_time_in_nanos": 43016485,
"cancellable": false
}
}
