Why newly created document has version 2?


(Makeyang) #1

I used upsert API and print UpdateResponse

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
        sb.append("{\"_index\":\"").append(response.getIndex()).append("\",\"_type\":\"")
            .append(response.getType()).append("\",\"_id\":\"").append(response.getId())
            .append("\",\"_version\":\"").append(response.getVersion())
            .append("\",\"created\":\"").append(response.isCreated()).append("}");

and I found below resposne:

{"_index":"bs-list_r","_type":"list","_id":"1031438199","_version":"2","created":"true}

so my question is: why created doc has _version 2?
is it by design or is it a bug?
if it is by design, can give more description or share some useful info please.

Please don't ping people like this. This is so annoying.

Wait for someone to pick your question.

Can you reproduce it with a curl script please?

See this page in the definitive guide for details on versioning: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/master/optimistic-concurrency-control.html#optimistic-concurrency-control

are u saying that I upsert data with giving certain version number? if so, I am telling u that I am not. I am not giving any version number when I upsert document. most of the docs' version is 1 when create=true, only a few with 2.

Can you reproduce it with a curl script please?

I create a script and all response turns out to be "_version":1

It means you are may be doing something wrong in the other code or you did change a document which was already existing...


(Makeyang) #10

you are damn right.but what exactly something wrong is? isn't server should response for this some way?
