SLM should be happening only for Delete Phase indices

Hi All,
I am using ELK version 8.0.0, where we are using SLM policy but wanted to know it there any option to make sure when the SLM happens it should be only happening for indices which are in delete phase. Currently it happens for all the indices e.g if we select winlogbeat than when SLM happen it take the snapshot for entire indices whether it is in Hot, warm, cold or delete phase due to this the space is consumed by SLM which is irrelevant.

please suggest Thank you.

There is no such option, when the SLM runs it will create a snapshot of all the indices that match its pattern regardless of the ILM phase of those indices.
