Ingest nodes and metadata

I am trying to use the Ingest Node to transform metadata using the Reindex API. I want to copy metadata to a member field. My pipeline looks like

PUT _ingest/pipeline/p1 
"processors" : [ { 
        "set" : { 
               "field": "myversion", 
                "value": "{{_source._ingest.version }}" 
    } } 
 ] } 

When I run it as
POST _reindex
"source": {
"index": "twitter"
"dest": {
"index": "twitter_dest",

The version data is not copied into 'myversion'. Any ideas on what is wrong?

I don't know ingest particularly well but whatever works in a regular index request ought to work in a reindex request. We have tests for some ingest/reindex combinations but I don't think we have this one.

Thanks for your answer
