Index alias with sliding time window

Hi,

when using ELK with standard configuration an new logstash index is created
every day.
Is there a possibility to create an alias, say "last-week" which always
covers the last 7 days?

I found several places within the ES docs where aliases like "last_3_month"
or "current_day" are used in index templates.
But I don't get how to you use these for a sliding time window.

Thanks in advance,
Görge

You just need to add them yourself, it's not an automatic process.

Use something like Elasticsearch Curator (
