I was wondering if I'm missing something here.
when an index is created on elasticsearch dynamically (from logstash, fluent, etc.), where does it get it's setting from (like shard amount, etc.)?
I was under the impression that it comes from the index templates, but I'm looking now at a brand new cluster, and I don't see any templates there, but still indices are being created.
so where do they get the settings from?
