I am using the Clastic cloud services and I was going through a practice exercise of restoring snapshot from one deployment to brand new deployment in case of any disaster.
The GUi is straight forward, but I am getting this error:
Unable to restore snapshot
[elasticsearch-snapshot:cloud-daily-snapshot-2023.05.08-rbh6w_0jr6kyxcdedcn2za/1Rv-QuweQy-2iWvYMoVSsg] cannot restore index [.apm-source-map] because an open index with same name already exists in the cluster. Either close or delete the existing index or restore the index under a different name by providing a rename pattern and replacement name
Look at the documentation, trying to close or delete .apm-source-map index messes up the deployments, so this is not the way.
