Error adding index template from for – How to solve this Elasticsearch error

Opster Team

Aug-23, Version: 7.2-7.15

Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch fails to add an index template due to issues like incorrect template syntax, insufficient permissions, or connectivity problems. To resolve this, ensure the template syntax is correct and compatible with your Elasticsearch version. Check if the user has the necessary permissions to add templates. Lastly, verify the connectivity between Elasticsearch and the source of the template.

In addition we recommend you run the Elasticsearch Template Optimizer to fix problems in your data modeling.

It will analyze your templates to detect issues and improve search performance, reduce indexing bottlenecks and optimize storage utilization. The Template Optimizer is free and requires no installation.
