If you need to change the mapping of an elasticsearch index, then you have to remove it first and then re-create and re-index it again. Here is how you can do this in a Laravel application.

  1. To remove an elasticsearch index, using postman:

  2. To re-create the index again in your Gitbash console:
    php artisan elastic:create-index App\\ElasticsearchIndexConfigurators\\FederalBillIndexConfigurator​

  3. If you need to create the searchable model, if not exist (This is optional, because it almost have been done previously):
    php artisan make:searchable-model MyModel --index-configurator=MyIndexConfigurator​

  4. to re-index the data again:
    php artisan scout:import "App\Bill"​
