I know we messed up big time by accidentally deleting all the indices from the cluster but I needed input regarding what is the proper procedure to restore it back.
While running the curator tool, accidentally gave the wrong action file thus resulting in all the indices being deleted from the cluster. This cluster had all x-pack settings configured, ssl settings configured, ldap and so on.
The issue now is that, though I do have a snapshot of the recent data present in one of the folders of the server (This path is not registered as a repository yet, though it contains the snapshot), the issue is in starting elasticsearch service again because the .security index has also been deleted thus we get an x-pack exception. I have stopped the ES, kibana and logstash services for now. I just want to know the right sequence of restoring the data from the snapshot I have, I have not restored a snapshot manually before so It would be really helpful if someone could just guide me regarding this.
