Cloning Index


When I'm trying to clone an index with data, I've been getting errors, if I run this;

POST /logflow-2019.11/_clone/robot-dsa_2
  "settings": {
    "index.number_of_shards": 5
  "aliases": {
    "my_search_indices": {}

Then I get

"type": "invalid_type_name_exception",
"reason": "Document mapping type name can't start with '_', found: [_clone]"

Where am I going wrong? The index is locked with "index.blocks.write": true


Hi @SpinDORK,

What version of the stack you use? Clone Index API is only available since 7.4.


7.2.0 we're using. Ok, thanks for your help.
