How to make ILM work in ES v 7.10.0

Hello Team,

May be a naive query but I couldn't find information on this topic.


GET _ilm/status giving me the following error:

  "error" : "Incorrect HTTP method for uri [/_ilm/status?pretty=true] and method [GET], allowed: [POST]",
  "status" : 405

What I need to do in ES cluster to make ILM work?

We have following plugins installed. Does it require any special plugin?


Opendistro is an AWS run product and differs from the original Elasticsearch and Kibana products that Elastic builds and maintains. You may need to contact them directly for further assistance.

ILM requires the default distribution of Elasticsearch and not the OSS one. This is as far as I know not compatible with OpenDistro.

Hello Vikrant,
Ilm is not available in oss version and is part of basic license.

If you are using open distro then similar feature is provided via ism and you can refer this for more details:

This isn't true, ILM is included in the free-and-open basic license tier, see Subscriptions | Elastic Stack Products & Support | Elastic.
