Elasticsearch index for ValueType [...] was not found, alias [...]. Skipping


#1

Hi,

when I start elasticsearch, zeebe (with es exporter) and operate, the following messages (and more) will be printed by operate infinitely:

2019-04-18 18:13:47.307 DEBUG 4281 — [ Thread-3] o.c.o.e.w.BatchOperationWriter : 0 operations locked

Do I need to bootstrap elasticsearch in any way?

Thanks!

Hi Christian,

these logs are expected on current version of Operate in case you have “empty” Zeebe (no deployed workflows). But the messages about absence of indices must go away once you create deployments and start creating and progressing workflow instances.
If it’s not the case, you would need to check, that you configured exporter and Operate correctly. You can write back, providing you configuration files.

BR,
Svetlana
