Elasticsearch: Archiving: Archiving entire index

Hello {Elastic World},
I am using Elasticsearch, kibana with beats(packet and top). I am able to successfully store the data into elasticsearch, and display it in kibana. As the time passing, number of indices in my disk are increasing, obviously. :wink:
Now I am looking for Archiving data and I came across Snapshot API, and went through it. Snapshot API says, Create Repositories, and the repository settings are repository-type specific,

My question is, as topbeat index or any other index can contain number of types, how to create a repository for entire index? or Do I need to create a separate repository for each type?

Not ES _type, but the type of repo. ie network storage, NFS, etc.
