Briefly, this error occurs when an Elasticsearch transform job has completed indexing all the data and is initiating a stop. This is not necessarily an error, but more of an informational message indicating the end of a process. If you didn’t expect the job to stop, check the job configuration and the data source. Ensure the job is set to continuous if you want it to keep running. Also, verify that your data source is continuously receiving new data. If the job is stopping prematurely, check for underlying issues like resource constraints or network interruptions.

Log Context

Log “[{}] transform finished indexing all data; initiating stop.” classname is
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

        if (indexerState.equals(IndexerState.STARTED) && context.getCheckpoint() == 1 && this.isContinuous() == false) {
            // set both to stopped so they are persisted as such
            indexerState = IndexerState.STOPPED;

  ; "Transform finished indexing all data; initiating stop");
  "[{}] transform finished indexing all data; initiating stop."; transformConfig.getId());

        // If we are `STOPPED` on a `doSaveState` call; that indicates we transitioned to `STOPPED` from `STOPPING`
        // OR we called `doSaveState` manually as the indexer was not actively running.
        // Since we save the state to an index; we should make sure that our task state is in parity with the indexer state
