Using Scripts for Documents Updating


(Giuseppe Merlo) #1

Hi,

i'm just trying to use script because i want to update by 1 my field data. I want to make a request like this:

curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/asl/tot/2/_update' -d '{"script" : "ctx._source.conta += 1"}'

and the ElasticSearch answer is:

scripts of type [inline], operation [update] and lang [groovy] are disabled

I try to add in elasticsearch.yml both script.engine.groovy.inline.search: on, script.groovy.sandbox.enabled: true and
script.inline: on
script.indexed: on

but Elasticsearch doesn't start and returns this error:

expected '<document start>', but found Block Mapping Start elasticsearch

Can someone help me?

Thanks a lot!

It seems that there is an error in your elasticsearch.yml. Can you please post your elasticsearch.yml. This will help in determining the error

This is my elasticsearch.yml file:

What version of Elasticsearch are you using??
May be this can help you more

Hi Giuseppe,

I have done following setting in my elasticsearch.yml file and it is working fine for me:
script.inline: true script.indexed: true

My config file is as follows:

script.inline: true
script.indexed: true

NOTE: After adding these properties, you will have to restart Elasticsearch.

Here is the script I ran and it's result:

`ubuntu@imteyaz:~/Downloads/elasticsearch-2.4.4$ curl -XPOST 'http://localhost:9200/asl/tot/1/_update' -d '{"script" : "ctx._source.conta += 1"}'

{"_index":"asl","_type":"tot","_id":"1","_version":2,"_shards":{"total":2,"successful":1,"failed":0}}`

Before running the script, the count was 1:

After executing the script, the count is 2:

Hope it is helpful.

Hi ahmadimt,

i tried to add script.inline : true and script.indexed: true as you suggested, but i've got the same error:

Thanks for all your support

Please remove space from this key....."network.host: 0.0.0.0". The issue is the blank space before this.


(Giuseppe Merlo) #10

Yeah, that works! Thank you for all your support. :grinning:
