Rolling indices for dynamic index names

Hi, I will be receiving documents into the cluster that I will not be aware of the index names. I want to leverage rolling indices either using ILM API and index templating or curator but the problem I see is I will receive unknown index names so I cannot bootstrap the index with unknownA-0001/_alias to initiate the rolling behavior. The index alias I would want would be unknownA with a rolling effect based on policy but I cannot even consider executing a reindex of the initial index unknownA to unknownA-0001 and then apply the alias of unknownA because by that time more documents will be received thus auto creating the index unknownA and the create alias will fail based on a index name existing with the same alias name. Any thoughts on how to handle this is much appreciated.
