Life cycle of a log submitted to elastic search

When a log is submitted to Elasticsearch, I was wondering what is the lifecycle.

We specify the index format so we know which view it'll be picked up in kibana.

But when does it get indexed, how do we know which which index applied and if any index template was applied. My main goal is to see if the life cycle policies that were created for my index templates are still applying to everything being submitted.


To check index template and ILM, you can run the following commands:

GET /<index-name>/_component_template 
GET /<index-name>/_ilm/explain
