I've added alias to my dynamic template using aliases field, as explained here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-templates.html
Then I've posted a trivial doc to the new index that matches template pattern.
New index is created, and its _settings show the alias, but it's ineffective somehow. Neither _cat/indices shows it nor can I search by alias name.
Am I missing something?
