[ANN] Elasticsearch Curator 0.1 released


(Damien Picard) #1

Hi,

I am pleased to announce the release of the Elasticsearch Curator, version 0.1.

The Elasticsearch Curator adds the facility to close/delete time-based indices with some simples rules as :
{
curator: [
{
name: Test 1,
pattern: "logstash-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}",
close: 30 days,
delete: 60 days
},
],
initialDelay: 5 minutes,
repeatDelay: 10 minutes
}

For questions or comments around it, feel free to use the project's github issue tracker https://github.com/dapicard/elastic-curator/issues

Enjoy,

Curious. Were you unaware of https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/client/curator/current/index.html ?

You're welcome to release your own product, but it would probably be wise to name it differently to avoid confusion, to say nothing of copyright issues.

Can you please clarify what you mean by "copyright issues"?

The license of of Elastic Curator is Apache License 2.0 https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/client/curator/current/license.html
and "Curator" is not a trademark afaik.

This is important to all plugin authors. I am not aware that Elastic (the company) is considering to enforce commercial trade rights against single members of the community who wants to help each other in their spare time.

Hi,

I am aware of the "official" script, but it wasn't totally covering our needs, mainly for production procedures purposes.

And, even if I think that there is no copyright issues currently, I will consider to rename it ; if only for mix-up...

Thank you
