I'm not quite sure why this isn't working but I'm trying to post to an alias instead of an index and it's not working. I have indexes called
index-october and they are both under the alias
index. When I put my logstash
index => "index" it fails but when I put
index => "index-september" it succeeds. Can I post to an alias?
I'm doing post processing on data in my indices and I'd like the documents to reroute via their _id to the correct index. I'm pulling them in via the elasticsearch input plugin. Any suggestion on how to do this?
