Index lifecycle Management index number

is ILM need multiple index with date or single index ?
example index tes-2019-07-02 or tes.

an ILM policy can be configured at any index, but this mostly makes sense when you something like time based indices - indices, which change over time (in size, in number of documents, older data gets less queried, etc).

Can you elaborate about the use-case you are pursuing?


@spinscale, for apply the ILM hot,warn, cold and delete is must using different node ?

Yes, the idea is that you move data between nodes of different capacity when you change between hot/warm/cold. And you cannot do that on a single node.
