I've been trying to get searchable snapshots working on 7.11 and have tried the setting the cold phase to take a searchable snapshot (using the found-snapshots repo - this might be a mistake) but the actions never seem to complete. I'm using elastic cloud.
Put simply what are the requirements or can someone at elastic show us :
- What are the requirements for searchable snapshot?
- Do we need a hot / cold tier?
- can we use the found-snapshots repo or do we need to register another one?
- Will the snapshots show up in the snapshot management ui?
- How will we know if we are searching a snapshot that resides on s3 / azure?
A guide that takes us from new cluster to searching data stored on s3 / azure would be great - the current docs only cover ILM setup...
