Does elasticsearch snapshot delete indices?



I am using curator plugin to create elasticsearch indices. Once snapshot of some index is created with it, that index still exists in elasticsearch and I can see that. My requirement is to delete indices after taking snapshots, so that I can save space, and can restore if I want old indices. Is this the normal behavior of elasticsearch snapshot method, that it wont delete indices after taking snapshot? Do I need to do separate snapshot and delete actions to achieve my goal?

yes, snapshotting won't delete the index.


Thanks @ywelsch
