We are using metricbeats 7.4.2 (also seen on 7.4.0) and with an elastic cluster that support index lifecycle management. According to metricbeats documentation, because ilm is enabled, the created index name is
metricbeat-7.4.2 instead of a daily index such as
metricbeat-7.4.2-date-0001. However, the index pattern that is created alongside the auto generated index template is
metricbeat-7.4.0-*, thus not matching
metricbeat-7.4.2 index and therefore the default generated ilm policy will not attach to the index. Is the auto generated template and associated matching index incorrect, or am I missing something here?
Note: ILM settings such as on this page are all defaults and unchanged.
