Error in updating an existing document field count in Elasticsearch

I have indexed a document in Elasticsearch as follows:

{
_parent: chow-demo
_index: prototype_2013.01.02
_type: chow-clfg
_id: Nx4JcvyxTPujkyy0Jq5BNw
_score: 11.600378
_source: {
chow-clfg: {
@type: chow-clfg
clfg: Cg5iV00z4woYAAAARQ0
@timestamp: 2013-01-02T06:26:00.000Z
count: 1
}
}
}

I tried to update the count field by the following command:

curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/prototype_2013.01.02/chow-clfg/Nx4JcvyxTPujkyy0Jq5BNw/_update' -d '{"script":"ctx._source.chow-clfg.count+=num","params":{"num":1}}'

However I received the following error instead:

{"error":"RemoteTransportException[[Vesta][inet[/10.15.78.249:9300]][update]]; nested: DocumentMissingException[[prototype_2013.01.02][0] [chow-clfg][Nx4JcvyxTPujkyy0Jq5BNw]: document missing]; ","status":404}

What exactly have I done that is missing? I was following the documents at
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/reference/api/update.html and yet it
doesn't work.

Also, I included the parent field:

curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/prototype_2013.01.02/chow-clfg/Nx4JcvyxTPujkyy0Jq5BNw/_update' -d '{"parent":"chow-demo","script":"ctx._source.chow-clfg.count+=num","params":{"num":1}}'

And it still didn't work. Anyone can help me with this error?

You should specify parent on URI (not in the body of the request).

Hi Igor,

I specified the request as followed:

curl -XPOST
'localhost:9200/prototype_2013.01.03/chow-clfg/YCKJVCgzQM2z8V663Zu0Ag/_update?parent=chow-demo'
-d '{"script":"ctx._source.chow-clfg.count+=num","params":{"num":1}}'

and I still received the DocumentMissingException though, even when I could
search for the exact document.

Can you provide a full repro? It seems to work for me:

Thanks Imotov, you are right; it works when I follow your example.
Initially it couldn't work because I thought I could do *
ctx._source.chow-clfg.count+=num* instead of *
ctx._source["chow-clfg"].count+=num*.

I just realized it still doesn't work for me when I am using Nodejs to run
and somehow the JSON parser can't seem to parse the backslashes properly.
Any advice on this?

Jonathan

I would try something like var script =
'ctx._source[\"chow-clfg\"].count+=num';

Hi Igor,

I tried your suggestion, but it didn't work.

However, I tried something like this:

var script = "ctx._source["chow-clfg"].count+=num";
script = JSON.stringify(script);
var data = '{"script":'+script+',"params":{"num":1}}';
data = JSON.stringify(data);
data = JSON.parse(data);

And finally it works.

Really thanks for all your help!

Jonathan
