Update mapping of an object

Hi all,

I have a mappings defined as:

{
"mappings" : {
"person" : {
"properties" : {
"name" : { "type" : "string", "index" :
"not_analyzed" },
"location" : {
"type" : "object",
"properties" : {
"address" : {"type" : "string",
"index_analyzer" : "address" }
}
}
}
}
}
}

I would like to update the mapping to include a new property in the
"location" object, is this possible? I've been able to add a new property
under the root "person" object but not in the "person.location" object.

Thanks!

Hi William

If you show us how you have added one property but failed to add the
other, then we could show you where you're going wrong.

But yes, you can add properties to a mapping, using the PUT mapping API:
