Update-mapping failed to dynamically update the mapping in cluster state from shard – How to solve this Elasticsearch error

Opster Team

Aug-23, Version: 1.7-1.7

Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch fails to update the mapping of an index dynamically. This could be due to a conflict in the mapping structure or insufficient cluster resources. To resolve this, you can manually update the mapping using the PUT mapping API. Ensure that the new mapping is compatible with the existing one. Alternatively, you can increase the resources of your cluster to handle the mapping update. Also, check for any network issues that might be preventing the update from being propagated across the cluster.

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.

Log Context

Log “[{}] update-mapping [{}] failed to dynamically update the mapping in cluster_state from shard” classname is MappingUpdatedAction.java.

                 listener.onResponse(new MappingUpdatedResponse());

            public void onFailure(Throwable t) {
                logger.warn("[{}] update-mapping [{}] failed to dynamically update the mapping in cluster_state from shard"; t; request.index(); request.type());
