ES 0.90, disable_delete_all_indices


(Norberto Meijome) #1

Hi everyone,

I have the following snippet in my elasticsearch.yaml

action:
disable_delete_all_indices: true

  1. is there a way to apply this via the API without restarting the node ? I couldn't find any reference to this and a few attempts didn't come back with anythign useful

  2. Is this a per-node setting, or a cluster wide setting? do i need to restart/apply against each node, or once set in any, will it work ?

cheers,
B

PS : Yes, I know 0.90 is an old version :slight_smile:

http://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/0.90/indices-delete-index.html mentions putting this in elasticsearch.yml;
action.disable_delete_all_indices: true

Hi Mark,
yeah, i was hoping this could be changed without having to restart the
service.

thanks for checking anyway :slight_smile:
