Run _ilm apis and get invalid_index_name_exception


(Heng zhang) #1

I tried to run the following API in my elastic cluster with version 6.5 and got error of invalid_index_name_exception. I also tried the api of POST /_ilm/start and got the same error. could you advice a solution?

my cluster has not security set up, i can access it without authentication and authorization.

PUT /_ilm/policy/test_policy
{
"policy": {
"phases": {
"hot": {
"actions": {
"rollover": {
"max_size": "100GB",
"max_age": "1h",
"max_docs": 1000000
}
}
},
"warm": {
"actions": {
"forcemerge" : {
"max_num_segments": 1
}
}
},
"delete": {
"min_age": "3h",
"actions": {
"delete": {}
}
}
}
}
}
