Cluster Filtering is not showing any results

I'm using Elastic Stack 7.8. I wanted to decommission a node, in order to do that i used the following command:

PUT _cluster/settings
  "transient" : {
    "cluster.routing.allocation.exclude._ip" : ""

it acknowledged true and now i can see it in my cluster settings but when i see allocation of shards, using

GET /_cat/shards

some are still in that ip. It's been half hour since, any idea how long till i'll see any results? If not, they how do i move those shards from that node?

How to move shards existing on a node to the remaining cluster?


It may take some time as it has to reallocate things. What is the output from _cat/recovery?v?

Sorry for being so hasty. I started reallocation in the night and the shards were reallocated in the morning. Thanks for the prompt response and sorry for the inconvenience.
