Index deleted by lifecycle after snapshot restore


I recently struggled with waking up to see a restore completed, but the restored index was missing. Is there a way to remove the lifecycle policy after the restore (I resorted to a script to do so after waiting for the restore). Or perhaps my snapshots should not still have the lifecycle in the first place?

Any advice on a cleaner way to handle this would be greatly appreciated!


When restoring, in the Kibana UI you have the option to modify the index settings.

just add this:

  "": null
