Log Context

Log “Invalid path element [” + element + “] in path [” + path + “]”classname  is AggregationPath.java We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

String element = elements[i];
 if (i == elements.length - 1) {
 int index = element.lastIndexOf('[');
 if (index >= 0) {
 if (index == 0 || index > element.length() - 3) {
 throw new AggregationExecutionException("Invalid path element [" + element + "] in path [" + path + "]");
 }
 if (element.charAt(element.length() - 1) != ']') {
 throw new AggregationExecutionException("Invalid path element [" + element + "] in path [" + path + "]");
 }
 tokens.add(new PathElement(element; element.substring(0; index); element.substring(index + 1; element.length() - 1)));
