Briefly, this error occurs when an interval query is executed in Elasticsearch without defining the required intervals. Interval queries allow you to find documents where a given set of terms are found within specified intervals. If the intervals are not defined, Elasticsearch cannot execute the query and returns this error. To resolve this issue, ensure that you have defined the intervals in your interval query. Check your query syntax and make sure that the intervals are correctly specified. If the intervals are dynamic, ensure that the logic generating them is functioning correctly.
