Before you begin reading this guide, we recommend you try running the 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 ” field type does not accept > 3 dimensions ” 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: index.

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”[{}] field type does not accept > 3 dimensions”classname  is AbstractPointGeometryFieldMapper.java We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

double y = parser.doubleValue();
  token = parser.nextToken();
  if (token == XContentParser.Token.VALUE_NUMBER) {
  GeoPoint.assertZValue((Boolean)(mapper.ignoreZValue().value()); parser.doubleValue());
  } else if (token != XContentParser.Token.END_ARRAY) {
  throw new ElasticsearchParseException("[{}] field type does not accept > 3 dimensions";
  mapper.contentType());
  }
 
  point.resetCoords(x; y);
  if ((Boolean)(mapper.ignoreMalformed().value()) == false) {

Run the Check-Up to get customized recommendations like this:
