In ElasticSearch(Nest), Can't specify parent if no parent field has been configured

I am using Nest Client to communicate with ElasticSearch.

When i trying to index child type it is giving me error in the heading. I have already set this attribute on Parent Type : [ElasticType(Name ="item", IdProperty = "id")]. This should tell elastic type about id field.

Below is the query made by nest with error info.

{StatusCode: 400, Method: PUT, Url: http://localhost:9200/itemindex/inventory/15894?routing=15894&parent=15894, Request: { "itemId": 15894, "inventories": [ { "storeId": 20693, "inventoryCount": 40 } ] } Response: {"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Can't specify parent if no parent field has been configured"}],"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Can't specify parent if no parent field has been configured"},"status":400}}

When i am using this query directly with sense. It is successfully inserting and updating data. But not when i try with Nest.

Please suggest? Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Could any one explain the reason of this error?


I don't know your index mapping, but looks like you forgot to specify parent when defining mapping for child document.

This is how you can do this with NEST 2.0.0-alpha1.

public class Parent { public int Id { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } } public class Child { public int Id { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } } var response = client.CreateIndex(indexName, d => d .Mappings(map => map .Map<Parent>(m => m.AutoMap()) .Map<Child>(m => m.AutoMap().Parent<Parent>())));

Hope it helps.
