_meta for Fs-Crawler Mapping

I would like my Elasticsearch to also read custom-metadata. I read about the _meta field and I am not sure how to implement it in my FS-Crawler Mappings. Does anyone have some experience with this field an can help?
So far I am using the Default-settings of the FS-Crawler without any changed.
thx <3


I'm not sure I understand the question. Could you share a typical document generated by FSCrawler and what are you expecting from it?

I have a pdf-document, which has custom-metadata, e.g. ("hashtag" : "us") The FSCrawler indexes this document as e.g. a report. With my Elasticsearchquery I can find all sorts of metadata of this report document, as "author", "created",.. which are standard metadata of an pdf file. But i also would like to see/find/index the custom-meta when I search for this document.

When you get the document, you can see all the meta fields, right?

Yes but only the "standard" ones, like "author" - not the custom ones…

Did you enable this? https://fscrawler.readthedocs.io/en/latest/admin/fs/local-fs.html#disabling-raw-metadata

Thank u! This was my mistake! Now it works perfectly
