"sort" on multiple indices with a missing field


#1

Hi,

I see queries on multiple indices with "sort" with a missing field causes an exception (query and exception are attached). And,

  • the same queries on individual index (either with or w/o a missing field) are fine
  • tried a couple of scripts but can't make it work (scripts and logs are attached)
  • Elasticsearch 5.3

Any insight, solution? Thanks in advance,

GET event-2017.09.1*/_search
{
  "sort":
     {
        "incidentLastSeen": {
           "order": "desc",
           "unmapped_type": "long"
        }
     }
}

{
   "error": {
      "root_cause": [],
      "type": "reduce_search_phase_exception",
      "reason": "[reduce] ",
      "phase": "query",
      "grouped": true,
      "failed_shards": [],
      "caused_by": {
         "type": "class_cast_exception",
         "reason": "java.lang.Long cannot be cast to java.lang.Float"
      }
   },
   "status": 503

#2

Found the reason - in one of indices, the field was mapped to a different type (float). :sweat:


#3

Still, I can't figure why 1505172945000, 1111111543123 were mapped as 'float' (using dynamic mapping).
