Delete by query api - ClusterBlockException[blocked by: [FORBIDDEN/8/index write (api)];] status": 403


(pmiles.mail) #1

Hi,

I'm trying to delete data by query from our elastic search cluster. If i
run the delete on the current active index it works fine.

However if i try to run the delete against an older index ( which is still
open ) I get an exception.

{
"error": "ClusterBlockException[blocked by: [FORBIDDEN/8/index write
(api)];]",
"status": 403
}

The query is http://1.2.3.4:9200/graylog2_102/message/_query

{
"size": 3,
"query": {
"match": {"message": "apples"}
}}

Can you advise on how to delete these specifc 'apple' messages without
deleting the whole index ?

Thanks

Paul.

Did you get an answer to this? I've just had the same {"error":"ClusterBlockException[blocked by: [FORBIDDEN/8/index write (api)];]","status":403} response .....

Came across the same issue. Any solution yet ?

Request to Elasticsearch failed: "ClusterBlockException[blocked by: [FORBIDDEN/8/index write (api)];]"

The reason for this in my case was that the ES machine ran out of space. I had to increase disk space. Hope that helps.
