So your origin and destination are both Elasticsearch?

Orgin is SQL Server client through JDBC consumer and destination is Elastic search

This can be achieved using JYTHON code , PFA below the code used .

ids = {}

for i, record in enumerate(records):
        id = record.value['ROWID_OBJECT']

        if id not in ids:

            ids.update({id: i})

            for k, v in record.value.items():
                if isinstance(v, dict):
                    record.value[k] = [record.value[k]]


            for k, v in record.value.items():
                if isinstance(v, dict):
                    if record.value[k] not in records[ids[id]].value[k]:

    except Exception as e:
        error.write(record, str(e))

for i, record in enumerate(records):
    if i in ids.values():

Nice solution! Note that you will need additional logic if there's a chance that the groups of records might be split across multiple batches.

I had the same issue I have included additional logic in my ETL , since my destination is Elastic Search , I am updating the records (Update with doc_as_upsert) , So then in case of same records its just an update to existing record , Same should be changed accordingly to different destination
