Allocate only selected indexes on new node

Hi there,

We have an ES cluster running with several indexes and nodes. Now we want to add a new node but want to allocate only a selected few indexes to this new node. Is it possible to accomplish this somehow without having to set index-level based shard allocation filtering for all the existing indexes and in their templates (and also for all future indexes that are not supposed to go to the new node)?

We know that there is the cluster-level shard allocation filtering, but if we use that to disable allocation to the new node, from the documentation it seems that there is no way to enable allocation for specific indexes.
