Script Processoredit

Allows inline, stored, and file scripts to be executed within ingest pipelines.

See How to use scripts to learn more about writing scripts. The Script Processor leverages caching of compiled scripts for improved performance. Since the script specified within the processor is potentially re-compiled per document, it is important to understand how script caching works. To learn more about caching see Script Caching.

Script Parameters


One of file, id, or source options must be provided in order to properly reference a script to execute.

You can access the current ingest document from within the script context by using the ctx variable.

The following example sets a new field called field_a_plus_b_times_c to be the sum of two existing numeric fields field_a and field_b multiplied by the parameter param_c:

{
  "script": {
    "lang": "painless",
    "source": "ctx.field_a_plus_b_times_c = (ctx.field_a + ctx.field_b) * params.param_c",
    "params": {
      "param_c": 10
    }
  }
