Log Context

Log “Used upsert operation [{}] for script [{}]; doing nothing…” classname is UpdateHelper.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

 
                // Only valid options for an upsert script are "create"
                // (the default) or "none"; meaning abort upsert
                if (!"create".equals(scriptOpChoice)) {
                    if (!"none".equals(scriptOpChoice)) {
                        logger.warn("Used upsert operation [{}] for script [{}]; doing nothing..."; scriptOpChoice;
                                request.script.getScript());
                    }
                    UpdateResponse update = new UpdateResponse(getResult.getIndex(); getResult.getType(); getResult.getId();
                            getResult.getVersion(); false);
                    update.setGetResult(getResult);
