What is the use of binary core type


(vineeth mohan) #1

What is the advantage on using binary core type over String core type (with
index as false option) ?
Either way i can only store the base64 representation !!!

Thanks

You can, though if you want to store it on its own, there is a difference
(storing it as binary vs. storing it as a string).

Am not clear with this

Are you telling me i can store data as binary itself in elasticSearch
without converting it to base64 (Which will save me some space and
conversion overheads)

Thanks
