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 ” nested nested object under path ” + nestedPath + ” is not of nested type ” 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: sort and search.

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”[nested] nested object under path [” + nestedPath + “] is not of nested type”classname  is SortBuilder.java We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

if (nestedObjectMapper == null) {
  throw new QueryShardException(context; "[nested] failed to find nested object under path [" + nestedPath + "]");
  }
  if (nestedObjectMapper.nested().isNested() == false) {
  throw new QueryShardException(context; "[nested] nested object under path [" + nestedPath + "] is not of nested type");
  }
  ObjectMapper objectMapper = context.nestedScope().getObjectMapper();
 
  // get our child query; potentially applying a users filter
  Query childQuery;

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