Upsert Examples

Newbie here.
I am trying to create an index using upsert

curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/metadata/load/ind1/_update' -d '{

"script" : "ctx.op = "none"",
"upsert" : {
doc: {"Key1" : "Value1"}
}
}'

Output:
{"ok":true,"_index":"metadata","_type":"load","_id":"ind1","_version":1}

Now what I actually want to do is to add another Value to the index.

curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/metadata/load/ind1/_update' -d '{

"script" : "ctx.op = "none"",
"upsert" : {
doc: {"Key2" : "Value2"}
}
}'

However, the source doc doesn't get updated with these new values.

What am I doing wrong here.

When I try this:

curl -XPOST 'localhost:9200/metadata/load/ind1/_update' -d '{
doc: {"Key3" : "Value3"},
"upsert" : {
}
}'

I find that the source actually got updated.

"_source" : {"doc":{"Key1":"Value1"},"Key2":"Value2","Key3":"Value3"}}]}}

Hello,

AFAIK, what you put in "upsert" is done only if the document doesn't exist.

For example, if you simply want to add a new field to an existing doc, this
should work:

curl -XPOST localhost:9200/test/test/1/_update -d '
{
"script": "ctx._source.field1 = "value1"",
}'

But that would fail if the document is missing. So just in case it's not
there, you can add an initial doc in the upsert section. For example:

curl -XPOST localhost:9200/test/test/3/_update -d '
{
"script": "ctx._source.field1 = "value1"",
"upsert": {
"field1": "value1",
"field2": "value2"
}
}'

Best regards,
Radu
