Create daily index with ILM

Hello there.
I got a simple question:
When i'm using filebeat, i would like to create a daily index and use index lifecycle policies.
Im currently using ilm with this settings in filebeat.yml:

setup.ilm.enabled: auto
setup.ilm.rollover_alias: "filebeat"
setup.ilm.pattern: "{now/d}-000001"

But as far as i saw, this way elastic doesn't create a daily index.

I also tried using "index" in filebeat.yml like this:

   hosts: xxxxxxxxx
   Index: "filebeat-%{now/d}"

(Setting up later setup.ilm.enabled: false + templates)

But this way i can't use index lifecycle policies...

Any suggestion?


If you setup the policy to create an index per day, then ILM will do that, it just won't change the timestamp in the index name.
