After upgrading our ElasticSearch in the recent months we now have Lifecycle Management to use - we have always used Curator to manage our rollover/delete indices, etc. Now we are looking to do away with Curator and use Lifecycle instead.
The problem is we have a large number of index templates that have multiple index patterns in them, which correspond to separate indices.
In order to apply a lifecycle mgmt policy to these templates, we first have to split the separate index patterns into their own templates, because of the rollover alias being the same for all of them.
Is there any way to handle this without having to recreate so many templates? Or did we just have a bad design from the beginning?
