Part 5: Understanding Mapping with Elasticsearch and Kibana

This workshop is part 5 of our Beginner’s Crash Course to Elastic Stack Series!

Have you ever encountered an error “Field type is not supported for [whatever you are trying to do with Elasticsearch]”?

The most likely culprit of this error is the mapping of your index!

Mapping is the process of defining how a document and its fields are indexed and stored. It defines the data type and format of the fields in the documents. As a result, mapping can significantly affect how Elasticsearch searches and stores data.

Understanding how mapping works will help you define mapping that best serves your goals and help you fix these pesky errors as they come up.

Join this workshop to get a crash course on mapping!

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is open to all developers with little to no experience with Elasticsearch and Kibana or those who could use a refresher.
