Hi, i am querying an REST api on my applications and indexing response json as elastic documents. Some of the field are integers so first time the index is create with numeric type for those fields but later the api some days can return "N/A" on those field instead of an integer and then ELK fails to index the full document with error.
Is there anyway to tell elasticsearch to ignore those invalid field values or set them to other value like -1 but index the rest of the document?
