Delete indices now working

I tried following command with curator cli

curator_cli --host ray-elasticsearch-service delete_indices --filter_list '{"filtertype":"age","source":"name","timestring":"%Y.%m.%d","unit":"days","unit_count"
:1,"direction":"older"}'

and the output which i got is

:1,"direction":"older"}'

When i tried with yml

{"@timestamp": "2019-05-31T11:11:32.227Z", "function": "run", "linenum": 173, "loglevel": "INFO", "message": "Skipping action \"delete_indices\" due to empty list: <class 'curator.exceptions.NoIndices'>", "name": "curator.cli"}

This is My filter in yaml

actions:
  1:
    action: delete_indices
    description: >-
      Delete indices older than <unit_count> days (based on index name), for custom-
      prefixed indices. Ignore the error if the filter does not result in an
      actionable list of indices (ignore_empty_list) and exit cleanly.
    options:
      ignore_empty_list: True
      continue_if_exception: False
    filters:
    - filtertype: age
      source: name
      direction: older
      timestring: '%Y.%m.%d'
      unit: days
      unit_count: 300



Am i missing here anything ?

This error is uncommon, but tends to happen when Elasticsearch is so busy it times out during the delete operation. The urllib3 component used by Curator will immediately retry the delete operation. If the index turns out to have completed deletion before this retry, this message will be the result.

Your index list has no indices older than 300 days, so the list of indices to delete was empty. That's what this error message means.

Thank you
