Snapshot name patterns

In elasticsearch 7.4.0, I have a snapshot policy that has the snapshot name pattern set to ""<snapshot-{now/d}>", however when the snapshots are taken, they have extra characters appended to the name, for example:

snapshot-2019.10.19-v29uweoos5yvxt5hz2sb7g

Why?

hi @wyllys66

see the SLM documentation at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/7.4/slm-api-put.html#slm-api-put-request-body that states:

To prevent conflicting snapshot names, a UUID is automatically appended to each snapshot name.

Thanks! I didn't see that before because I setup my snapshot policy through Kibana and not using the REST API directly.
