Object field starting or ending with a [.] makes object resolution ambiguous: []


(Bradley Baysinger) #1

I'm getting the error "object field starting or ending with a [.] makes object resolution ambiguous: []". But there isn't a single dot [.] in my object. Using elasticClient.update() I'm passing:

The dot check looks for empty values in intermediate fields when parsing the full path. I think these empty field names are causing this to trip (which are also not valid):

"": {},
