Docs.deleted docs are missing after reindexing

We are in the process of reindexing data from one cluster another cluster. We are observing docs.deleted is 0 which is different from the old cluster.

We tried curl -X POST "localhost:9200/_refresh?pretty" , but no use.

Questions:

  1. Do we really need to care about docs.deleted?
  2. How can we get the docs.deleted instead perform the reindexing again.

Probably not. If you deleted docs it seems strange that you now mind that they're no longer there :slight_smile:

This is the behaviour I'd expect: reindexing will only reindex the docs that weren't deleted.
