Export old indices before deleting them


I need a retention time of 2 months for the data in my elastic search cluster. After that period of time, I need to move my old data to a cheap storage such as s3 (just in case) and use curator to remove everything older than 2 months.

Should I use the snapshot API before using curator? Any details are welcome.

Thank you.

Curator can also perform the snapshots :slight_smile:

Thanks @theuntergeek, you're right. Here is the link for further reference: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/client/curator/current/snapshot.html
