Update Document without doc_ID

Hello there,

i import a lot of data in my ES Indexes with Logstash. If i import the same data twice (maybe a error or overlapping with the importer) , the documents are stored twice in ES.

Is there any possibility to update existing docs without watching the document_ID?
Because they are damn unique.

My first thought was, to create my own doc_id with the fingerprint-filter-plugin in Logstash. But the Performance is sooo bad with this configuration.

Thanks to all.

No, there's not.

okay, thanks =)
