Skipping rollover option

I have enabled skipping rollover option while using index lifyce cycle policy . But ILM still tries to perform rollover.

below is the error we see

illegal_argument_exception: setting [index.lifecycle.rollover_alias] for index [oracle-alert-fields-2019.47] is empty or not defined

we are doing index rollover every day at logstash. we are trying to use lifecycle policy to delete indices whey they are x number of days old.

below are index settings

"index.query.default_field": [
"index.refresh_interval": "1s",
"index.write.wait_for_active_shards": "1",
"": "cdldev_policy",
"index.lifecycle.indexing_complete": "true",
"index.blocks.read_only_allow_delete": "false",
"index.priority": "100",
"index.number_of_replicas": "1"

is anyone faced similar issue? are there any alternatives ways to fix roll over error while using iLM?
