Kibana scripted field (bad request error)

Hi, so I added a scripted field in one of the index pattern. I am pretty sure the code should work fine.

return doc['sequence'].value % 2

When I previewed the results, it works fine. However, when I tried to view it in Discover, it said "error loading data, [script_exception] runtime error"

Below are the full error descriptions

This is the said scripted field

And this is some of the preview results. They're correct as well.

It seems that not every log has the same field. I have added a condition to check whether there is that field and this is solved.

Hey @thanirin,

I have the same problems. Could you tell me exactly what the condition is?

Thanks a lot.

Hi @Anton91,

In my case, every log has the same field called "type", and I also know that a certain type has the field no other type has. That's why I could add a condition to filter the type I want first. For example...

if(doc['type.keyword'].value.contains("the_Type_I_Want")) {
    return doc['filed_not_avail_every_type'].value % 2

However, if you don't have a field that can differentiate the log, you might be able check if the interested field is null or not. Although, I'm not sure if it will work because I haven't tried it.

edit: I found out that you can use _exists_:the_field_name to check if a field is not null.
