How to get all indices that ever existed


(Abhijit) #1

Hello,

is there a way to find out the names of all the indices ever created? Even after the index might have been deleted. Does elastic store such historical info?

Thanks

Hello,

Elasticsearch does not keep a record of deleted indices. You may be able to find a record of them in the cluster log. Look for lines like this:

[2015-09-30 10:47:17,309][INFO ][cluster.metadata         ] [Johnny] [twiiter] deleting index

Thanks
