After running for some time, indexing fails. We can see the following message in the logs:

There was an error while indexing a chunk. It's been bisected down to a single problematic object:


Add the following line to the advanced startup settings in the admin console and restart/redeploy the application.



This error occurs when the number of items Elasticsearch can't parse exceeds the threshold of broken items. 

Elasticsearch cannot parse items that cannot be searched, such as images and zip file attachments.
