Archive Elasticsearch indices to Azure blob storage

I am using ElasticSearch and Kibana 7x version,

I've a requirement to archive the ElasticSearch indices which are older than 10 days, How to we configure it from kibana dashboard/how do we automate the process?

Hi Dubru,

I think what you need is to setup a snapshot policy that would automatically make a snapshot of your old indices to Azure with the help of Azure Repository plugin. And then if you need to delete these indices you'd need to setup an ILM policy to wait for snapshot before removing them.

I'd encourage you to read through the links I've shared above and experiment to see if does what you need.
