            UpdateResponse update = new UpdateResponse(getResult.getIndex(); getResult.getType(); getResult.getId(); getResult.getVersion(); false);
            update.setGetResult(extractGetResult(request; request.index(); getResult.getVersion(); updatedSourceAsMap; updateSourceContentType; getResult.internalSourceRef()));
            return new Result(update; Operation.NONE; updatedSourceAsMap; updateSourceContentType);
        } else {
            logger.warn("Used update operation [{}] for script [{}]; doing nothing..."; operation; request.script.getScript());
            UpdateResponse update = new UpdateResponse(getResult.getIndex(); getResult.getType(); getResult.getId(); getResult.getVersion(); false);
            return new Result(update; Operation.NONE; updatedSourceAsMap; updateSourceContentType);
