Update by query warning in documentations


(yoav) #1

Why update-by-query documentations still have a warning saying - "The update-by-query API is new and should still be considered experimental"
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/docs-update-by-query.html

It was added long ago in 2.3 (Current version is 5.3)
Is it safe to use in production?

Thanks
Yoav

It's been quite safe since I added it in 2.3. We test it a ton. That tag means that we might change the API in a minor release if we find something crazy. Though, honestly, at this point I think we're beyond that for update-by-query.

Actually we'd meant to unmark it as experimental but we did the java api version of the docs and didn't to the main version. I'll push a fix.

I pushed


which should cause the experimental tag to be dropped from the documentation in the next half an hour or so.

Great. Thank you Nik.
