Invalid_type_name_exception error


(Clay Gorman) #1

I seem to be getting an error when accessing my index. I will mention it has multiple types within a single index. I also want to say im using the latest kibana with the graph plugin.

This looks like the error you get if you haven't installed the graph plugin on your elasticsearch node.
The call to the _graph api is interpreted As an attempt to create a new doc type.

Thanks for that looks like a missed one of the nodes and now its good. Now I get the following error. I have a basic license I use for marvel and it looks like its good until january 2017 when I hit /_license uri. I was hoping to just check out the 30 day trial.

   "error": {
      "root_cause": [
            "type": "security_exception",
            "reason": "current license is non-compliant for [graph]",
            "license.expired.feature": "graph"
      "type": "security_exception",
      "reason": "current license is non-compliant for [graph]",
      "license.expired.feature": "graph"
   "status": 401

There is already another topic in this forum that discusses the license requirements. See Authorization Required
