I'm a beginner using ELK, and as a beginner, I imported some logs that ended up having numeric fields imported as text. So, I fixed the log stash process to convert those correctly, and now my indices are conflicted.
I've found a number of articles on re-indexing - they all seem to indicate that one uses curl commands to do things like re-indexing, mappings, etc.
That seems pretty low level - my first instinct would be to make some custom scripts that encapsulate those curl commands. Is that the standard practice for management?
