Exactly - how to map geoip.location to geo_point- WTF!


(Bob Metelsky) #1

Folks - I'm at a complete loss here. I've scoured the web trying to find out how to do this and this just seems unnecessarily complicated.

Can someone point me to a working example of what is needed to map my data to geo_point

This is truly ridiculous - how such a useful feature can be so hidden and DIFFICULT to implement. How can this product grow at this rate of working documentation or ease of implementation

I'm definitely not a novice - but who ever manages this - needs to get with some working examples for the everyday man.

I've wasted a half day on this simple step

Let's see the elastic search support team...

geoip.location looks to be a number, not a geopoint.
So it'd depend on what you have set your template/mapping to be.

Mark I have a presentation to a users group re elastic. I'm trying to get an answer to using this feature. What exactly can you tell me based on my question? I don't know template mapping I'm using the main mapping file in the log stash Conf and posted on the website I linked.

I'm using this template per log stash.conf

elasticsearch-apache-weblogs-geoip.json

Ok, and what does the applied mapping for the actual document look like? ie query the _mapping endpoint and show us.
