Index lifecycle error on metricbeat and heartbeat

Hi Team,

In kibana under, in index management under indices its showing 79 indices have lifecycle errors and this no. is getting increased daily on elasticsearch v7.4

I am going through ILM docs, for beats ILM is enabled default and I have not done any modification so my concern is why its showing this error for out of box things?

from docs its not clear what needs to point metricbeat-7.4.0 to index metricbeat-7.4.0-2021.07.02.


Index lifecycle error

illegal_argument_exception: index.lifecycle.rollover_alias [metricbeat-7.4.0] does not point to index [metricbeat-7.4.0-2021.07.02]


llegal_argument_exception: index.lifecycle.rollover_alias [heartbeat-7.4.0] does not point to index [heartbeat-7.4.0-2021.07.01]

can't see this error for filebeat.


Hi Team,

any reason for above error?


Run the following in Kibana / Dev Tools and report back

GET metricbeat-7.4.0/_alias
