Regarding the implementation of _ttl

Hello all,

I've got a small question regarding the implementation of the _ttl field.

It is written in the docs that

The current _ttl implementation is deprecated and will be replaced with a different implementation in a future version.

Will the usage of the field be changed too? And when is the estimated time these changes will be impelmented?

Best regards,


The migration guide might be helpful for you:

Quoting said guide: "The _timestamp and _ttl fields are deprecated, but will remain functional for the remainder of the 2.x series.

Instead of the _timestamp field, use a normal date field and set the value explicitly.

The current _ttl functionality will be replaced in a future version with a new implementation of TTL, possibly with different semantics, and will not depend on the _timestamp field."

Hope this helps,

You can/should use time based indices instead.
