Best practices for cleaning up old indices


I can't use the curator plugin (or any other plugin really) because we are on AWS ES service.. I'm thinking the best I could do is write some bash scripts and fire them off with cron everyday , deleting old indices. does anyone have any best practice advise? thanks

You can use curator called from another machine though.
That is all you would be doing if you DIY some bash scripts, right?

Yes. Curator is not a plugin. It's a standalone app so it should work.


doh.. great, got it thanks.

@treehouse Curator 3.4.0 includes some fixes which specifically address usability within AWS ES. It should work just fine for what you need.
