I am attempting to set up a machine learning job that detects high_sum of a field for a daily ingest. However, the data I am ingesting is conditional, and we may not actually receive any documents for a given day (most days even). This is a standard result that we would like to capture in this machine learning anomaly detection job. However, my job is not reporting the values I would expect as anomalies. I believe this is because the days without any data are not actually contributing to the detection algorithm.
I have been searching around this forum and elsewhere to no avail looking for a solution to this issue. What I would like to set up is a default value of 0 for those buckets without any documents. How might I go about setting up this job?
