CCR: deleted follower index without unfollow


I have deleted an index on follower cluster without unfollowing it.

I need to create a follower with same index name. However, unable to do that.
Can you please suggest?

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

What version of Elasticsearch are you on?
What error are you seeing when you try to create the follower?

Hi Mark,

Thank you!

We are using 7.6.0.

I was getting the error yesterday. I missed to capture the error.
I tried replicating it now. But couldn't replicate it. It seems to be working fine.

So now I have one question, if we can delete a follower index without unfollowing leader and create follower again, is it really required to pause follow and close leader index before unfollowing?
