Deleted indexes reappearing


(Darren) #1

Hi Guys,

Playing with elasticsearch at the moment, amazed with just how simple it is
to get a cluster up and running. It just works (tm)

I've come to try and delete an index but after around 30 mins it appears
back again. Shouldn't it actually.. delete? I'm trying this against a
single node so I can't think where it's coming back from.
Using: curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/index_name/'

Thanks,
Darren

Is there a chance that you index a document by mistake against that index
name so it gets created? You can see in the logs why an index gets created.

Checking the logs was probably a good idea.. Turns out I did have a rogue
script running inserts which is embarrassing :slight_smile:

Thanks for the pointer

No problem. you can disable automatic index creation if you want, by
setting: action.auto_create_index to false.
