Changing TTL of all documents in an index?

What's the best way to change the TTL of all documents already written in
an index? Can up just update the TTL or do I have to re-index everything?

I was thinking that if I have to update the TTL often maybe I just write a
manual garbage collector and do my own cleanup.

You can set the same TTL for all docs in an index -

If you're updating the TTL often, then perhaps using time based indexes
would be a better idea? TTL is resource heavy.
