Briefly, this error occurs when Elasticsearch is unable to parse a schedule because it expects an object or an array, but it received a different data type. This usually happens when setting up a scheduled event or task in Elasticsearch. To resolve this issue, you should check the schedule syntax in your request. Ensure that the schedule is correctly formatted as an object or an array. If it’s an object, it should be enclosed in curly braces {}. If it’s an array, it should be enclosed in square brackets [].
