Extra Fields


(Chris) #1

I have a dumb question, but I was wondering if I have a elasticsearch mappings with multiple fields in the property section of the mappings, then I send a document to elasticsearch, but the document is missing a few fields that are not in the mappings, this should not cause any issue correct? Thanks in advance guys :slight_smile:

It'll create a null value field :slight_smile:

That may or may not be an issue for you though. Doing aggs on time based data will look weird.
