Restrict the fields from being updated

Hi ,

Is there a way to restrict the updation of a particular field while indexing a document.
For example I have a field 'name' which is of type text and I index a document , next time I try to change this 'name' either it should throw me an erro or should not accept the new value.

Change it how?
If you are talking about changing it from a text field to numeric, Elasticsearch will not allow that.

Hi @warkolm
If suppose I try to index a document the 2nd time and this time the name field is changed from "Tom" to "Bob" , I want to prevent this change , restrict a field from being updated.

Ok, you want to stop a document from being updated entirely?

Not entire document but few fields in the document

The only way to do that is via field level security.

As far as I know enabling field level security gives a read only view of the index so I do not think it is a solution. This is not possible in Elasticsearch so is something you would control in your code when indexing or updating the data.

Ah yes, you are right. It doesn't cover writes.
