Restore a snapshot to diffrent alias

I have a Jenkins job that restore snapshots based on alias name via curator utility
However, such action will override the index data !
Is there a way to restore a snapshot to different alias name ?
Can it be done via curator ?

Can you restore to an alias via the API? I could be mistaken, but I thought you had to restore to an index name, and then create/update the alias to point to those indices.

You cannot restore to an alias, only an index.

So yes, you need to restore then update the alias :slight_smile:

Thanks guys
My mistake was working with aliases and not index names.
