Elasticsearch snapshot retention behavior

Lets say we create daily indices with ILM policy that delete data after 1 year. And lets say we have SLM that have retention period of 30 days. So, eventually what will be the content of snapshot after 1 year. Is it one year data or it will have only 30days data?

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

SLM will have the last 30 days of data.

Each snapshot created by SLM will have the full set of indices in the cluster at the time it is taken, which would be 1 years worth of data.

Ahh yeah good point, I missed that :joy:
