Alias for monthly indices

Hey guys,

We've created an alias perferr for two indices say and However when a new index is created the next month we have to run the alias command again.
Is there any way we can make any new indices created to get auto-aliased :smiley:

From the documentation "The create index API allows also to provide a set of aliases:"

PUT test
    "aliases" : {
        "alias_1" : {},
        "alias_2" : {
            "filter" : {
                "term" : {"user" : "kimchy" }
            "routing" : "kimchy"

But is there any way to specify the alias in the elasticsearch output in logstash?

You can define aliases through an index template, which will automatically add new indices to the alias as they are created.
