How can we apply ILM to Stack Monitoring indices?

We are using Stack Monitoring on our Elastic Cloud clusters and this is proving very helpful. However, by default, the Stack Monitoring creates new indexes everyday (.monitoring-*) and we have not found and easy way to change this. Index sizes vary but are always below 1 GB per day so we would like to apply an ILM policy to manage the number of indices.

It was suggested that we convert the monitoring indices to use datastreams but I would like to find instructions on how to do that since it does appear as a trivial task and is certainly not without risks of breaking something. Any other suggestion is welcome.
