Update Elasticsearch Templates to Work with Elasticsearch 5.x

To update your existing Elasticsearch templates, perform the following steps:

  1. Retrieve the template.
    The following example appends index* to get all indexes for the provided sensor:
    export ELASTICSEARCH="node1"
     export SENSOR="bro"
     curl -XGET "http://${ELASTICSEARCH}:9200/_template/${SENSOR}_index*?pretty=true" -o "${SENSOR}.template"
  2. Remove an extraneous JSON field so you can put it back later, and add the alert field:
    sed -i '' '2d;$d' ./${SENSOR}.template
     sed -i '' '/"properties" : {/ a\
     "alert": { "type": "nested"},' ${SENSOR}.template
  3. Verify your changes:
    python -m json.tool bro.template
  4. Add the template back into Elasticsearch:
    curl -XPUT "http://${ELASTICSEARCH}:9200/_template/${SENSOR}_index" -d @${SENSOR}.template
