Old Kibana indices

Is that safe to delete old Kibana indices? there are lots of them. (They should probably cleaned up during an upgrade)


I already had to delete some indices manually because of storage problems.

By doing this you risk losing the data in these indices but if they are old and you don't need them anymore I don't see any problem to do this.

Be sure of what you are deleting, if you do a query afterwards on the period concerned you may get a warning that some shards are missing.

If I say something wrong, don't hesitate to correct me, I answer from my experience but it is quite possible that I make mistakes.
