Full_id Parameter unrecognized in 5.0 on _cat/nodes

(Nathan Lowe) #1

I wanted to verify that this is a bug before opening an issue on github. It appears that the full_id parameter is unrecognized in 5.0:

# GET _cat/nodes?full_id=true&h=id

  "error": {
    "root_cause": [
        "type": "illegal_argument_exception",
        "reason": "request [/_cat/nodes] contains unrecognized parameter: [full_id]"
    "type": "illegal_argument_exception",
    "reason": "request [/_cat/nodes] contains unrecognized parameter: [full_id]"
  "status": 400

Was this removed in 5.0? This breaks elasticbeat.

Just a guess: there was a PR recently that removed silentlty ignoring unknown url parameters in favour of throwing errors: https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/pull/20722
Could it be that this parameter was never supported / didn't really change anything on the output before 5.0? I'm not too familiar with _cat though.

I'm not very familiar with the codebase, but according to https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/blob/5.0/core/src/main/java/org/elasticsearch/rest/action/cat/RestNodesAction.java#L217-L236 there should be a full_id parameter, no?

Might be a bug, would you mind opening an issue then?

Looks like it already gets taken care of. Thanks for catching this!
