I am trying to use the reindex API and use a template for the destination index that will setup the mapping for the destination index as the reindex API doesnt copy the settings of the source index to the destination index. But i see that the destination index doesnt even use the template for its mapping. I verified the pattern used in the template and it does fit the index that would get created as part of the reindex. I have enabled the auto index creation.
Is this a known issue?
