.kibana index getting deleted

I'm not sure why my .kibana index is getting deleted. Kibana config has the following settings for index: kibana.index: ".kibana" which seems to be fine to me.
However, curator job has the following settings:

        action: delete_indices
        description: "Clean up ES by deleting old indices"
          continue_if_exception: False
          disable_action: False
          ignore_empty_list: True
        - filtertype: age
          source: creation_date
          direction: older
          unit: days
          unit_count: 15

Can this delete .kibana index ?

Yes. You have only a single filter based on creation date. The .kibana index has a creation date too.

Best to add a pattern filter as well that blocks indices starting with .
