{"expected:'[', actual:'{', at offset:2058"}

Hi,
I'm new to elastic and FSCrawler.
I have an index created using FSCrawler. It has only a single document which looks like below -

 {
          "content" : """MotorColour - 
		

CoatingColor - 	
		


CSV

	
""",
          "meta" : { },
          "file" : {
            "extension" : "txt",
            "content_type" : "text/plain; charset=windows-1252",
            "created" : "2022-06-20T05:56:52.641+00:00",
            "last_modified" : "2022-03-05T05:25:55.594+00:00",
            "last_accessed" : "2022-06-23T08:19:48.828+00:00",
            "indexing_date" : "2022-06-23T09:09:28.997+00:00",
            "filesize" : 239,
            "filename" : "1.txt",
            "url" : """file://C:\temp\tmp\es\1.txt"""
          },
          "path" : {
            "root" : "fda731c3ec0bf30ff36fecce8c4155e",
            "virtual" : """\1.txt""",
            "real" : """C:\temp\tmp\es\1.txt"""
          }
        }

When i issue this Query using NEST client library

searchResponse = client.Search<DesignFile>(s => s
             .Index(FileIndexName)
             .Query(q => q
                .MatchAll()
              )
             );

it gives an error

i think it has something to do with the serialization?
What is the way to get rid of the error and be able to search the index?

Here is the content of the text file that i indexed using FSCrawler -

MotorColour - 
		

CoatingColor -

Hi, @Zedson.Sagar,

This appears to be a deserialisation issue of the source to your DesignFile type. It looks like the serialisation is expecting to deserialise a collection for one of the properties, but the JSON includes an object. Can you please share the DesignFile class definition?

@stevejgordon
aaah.. how did i miss that !!!... i had mistakely set one of the properties as an array of objects instead of an object. Thanks for the pointer.. foolish me wasted 3hrs for this :rofl:
