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 ” + fieldType.name() + is configured for points only but a ” 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”[{” + fieldType.name() + “}] is configured for points only but a”classname  is LegacyGeoShapeIndexer.java We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

for (Shape s : shapes) {
  fields.addAll(Arrays.asList(fieldType.defaultPrefixTreeStrategy().createIndexableFields(s)));
  }
  return fields;
  } else if (shape instanceof Point == false) {
  throw new MapperParsingException("[{" + fieldType.name() + "}] is configured for points only but a "
  + ((shape instanceof JtsGeometry) ? ((JtsGeometry)shape).getGeom().getGeometryType() : shape.getClass())
  + " was found");
  }
  }
  return Arrays.asList(fieldType.defaultPrefixTreeStrategy().createIndexableFields(shape));

 

Run the Check-Up to get a customized report like this:
