Delete_all_indicies

Hi,
Running 15 node ElasticSearch 0.19.11 cluster on EC2. I'd like to set
the delete_all_indicies option to prevent anyone from doing that. Two
questions.

  1. What's the correct way to set that flag? That goes in elasticsearch.yml?
    Is it as simple as:

action.disable_delete_all_indices: true

  1. Is there a way to set that without restarting servers? Do I need to
    restart all the servers in the cluster for that option to take effect?

Thanks.

-Sean

Yes, it's that simple :slight_smile:

Yes, unfortunately you'll have to restart Elasticsearch for these changes
to take effect. If you have a bigger cluster, and only one or two nodes
with HTTP enabled which get hit by requests directly, I guess it's fine to
only restart those nodes. I haven't tested it, but it should be enough.

Best regards,
Radu
