WARNING: Version 1.4 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
When dates are specified without a year, for example:
Dec 15 10:00:00 they
are treated as dates in 2000 during indexing and range searches… except for
the upper included bound
lte where they were treated as dates in 1970! Now,
all dates without years
1970 as the default.
