Removing multiple snapshots using the API

I am fairly new to ElasticSearch and was trying to do some backup and
restore using the API. I wrote a shell script to remove snapshots older
than certain days but it somehow removes the repo instead of the snapshots
info stored in a variable. Any help would be appreciated:

#Remove snapshots older than 7 days
cd /snapshot/directory

OLD_BACKUP=find snapshot-* -mtime +7

OLD_SNAPSHOT=for filename in ${OLD_BACKUP}; do [ -f "$filename" ] || continue mv $filename ${filename//snapshot-/} done

curl -XDELETE "xyz.com:9200/_snapshot/handoff_backup/${OLD_SNAPSHOT}
http://argentina.pdi.com:9200/_snapshot/handoff_backup/${OLD_SNAPSHOT}
"

You could everything through the API.

  • list all the snapshots in the repository
  • parse the JSON returned
  • for each snapshot, if it's older than 7 days, delete the snapshot
