I’m trying to create an index in elasticsearch using kibana dev tools but i’m facing the following errors.please suggest me on this.

PUT xyz
{
“mappings”:{
“abc”:{
     “type”:”nested”,
     “properties”:{
         “name”:{“type”:”keyword”}
     }
  }
 }
}

Error:
{
type:”mapper_parsing_exception”,
reason:”Root mapping definition has unsupported parameters:[type:nested]
}

It was working fine elasticsearch 7 but not in version 6.4.2

This is because in ES 7, mapping types have been removed.
If you want to make this work on ES 6.4.2, you need to change your query to include a mapping type name, like this:

PUT xyz
{
  "mappings": {
    "type_name": {                      <---- add this
      "properties": {                   <---- and this
        "abc": {
          "type": "nested",
          "properties": {
            "name": {
              "type": "keyword"
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}
