Elastic Search nicely does update behind the scene when I provide an "_id"
while indexing. Its pretty cool!!
But this happens only on one Index. Is it possible to do across indices?
In my application I do rollover indexes, it create new indexes after a
certain number of documents.
But there are scenarios where update request comes for a document which is
part of one of the old index which is not pointing by the alias.
And hence it creates a new document instead of updating.
One way is that I keep track of the ids on each Index and then push the
document to that particular index if its an update. But thats a very ugly
looking approach. Is there a better way?
Alternatively is there a support for Update By Query something like
Your response will be much appreciated!
