Kibana version : 7.10.0
Elasticsearch version : 7.10.0
Filebeat version : 7.10.0
Logstash version : 7.10.0
I'm trying to set up a lifecycle management for my indices. Therefore I created two index templates. One for each type of my logs.
My Problem comes with adding a lifecycle policy to my index templates. I'm asked for a 'alias for rollover index'.
I tried to leave it blank and got an error saying:
"lifecycle error alias empty or not defined"
I tried to state different aliases like:
'filebeat-tomcat', 'filebeat-tomcat-000001' or 'filebeat-tomcat-7.10.0-000001'
an got the error:
"index lifecycle rollover_alias does not point to index"
My logs are collected by Filebeat and shipped to Logstash.
Or should I use the Logstash ILM (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/plugins-outputs-elasticsearch.html#plugins-outputs-elasticsearch-ilm) instead ?
Thanks for any help in advance.
