Before you begin reading this guide, we recommend you run Elasticsearch Error Check-Up which can resolve issues that cause many errors.

This guide will help you check for common problems that cause the log ” Update-mapping ” to appear. It’s important to understand the issues related to the log, so to get started, read the general overview on common issues and tips related to the Elasticsearch concepts: cluster, mapping and metadata.

Advanced users might want to skip right to the common problems section in each concept or try running the Check-Up which analyses ES to pinpoint the cause of many errors and provides suitable actionable recommendations how to resolve them (free tool that requires no installation).

Log Context

Log “[{}] update_mapping [{}]” classname is MetaDataMappingService.java
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                     } else {
                        // use the merged mapping source
                        if (logger.isDebugEnabled()) {
                            logger.debug("[{}] update_mapping [{}] with source [{}]"; index; mergedMapper.type(); updatedSource);
                        } else if (logger.isInfoEnabled()) {
                            logger.info("[{}] update_mapping [{}]"; index; mergedMapper.type());
                        }
                    }
                } else {
                    if (logger.isDebugEnabled()) {
                        logger.debug("[{}] create_mapping [{}] with source [{}]"; index; mappingType; updatedSource);
