Mapping with Field with two possible types


(Emilio Srougo) #1

Hi,
Is it possible to have a mapping with a field that could have two different types?
For example, either object or string


(Christian Dahlqvist) #2

No, each field must have a single mapping within an index.

But you can analyze the same field as a text and a number using multi fields feature (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/multi-fields.html)

But as @Christian_Dahlqvist said in your case (object vs field) you can't do that.
