I am new to elasticsearch and am trying to figure out index management. I index smallish documents continuously for a week. I would like the index names to include the date in their name along with a project specifier i.e.
It doesn't appear to be a simple thing to do. Is this accomplished by using a template for foobar indexes and then alias all foobar indices to some umbrella term for searching? If this is correct than I assume I use curator to prune?
I just want to make sure I am not over complicating an otherwise simple thing.
Thank you for reading this and your thoughts.
