I was looking to build in some automatic re-index logic into my
system, and was planning to use aliases to keep the old index around
while I'm rebuilding the new one. Now, I could find a way to keep
track of the indexes that I've aliased in a database, but I figured
that since ES knows what its aliases are, it would probably make sense
to ask the search service what index its alias is pointing to.
Trouble is, I can't find such an API. Am I missing something? Or is
it just something nobody's ever asked for?
Anyway, thanks again for all the hard work. Can't wait to get started
using this thing in a real production system!
