Storing Metrics in new ES index

I am new to rally and use the option where I store rally metrics to an elastic search cluster. Every time run a rally track it indexes the metrics to the same index that it created(for example for this month the name of the index is rally-metrics-2019-04). I have been using rally only this month but seems like all the benchmarks that I run this month will be stored in the same index. Is there a way to create a new index(preferably giving the index a custom name) every time I run a new benchmark? I have scouring the docs but couldn't find anything.

That sounds like a very bad idea as it would lead to a lot of very small indices. Is having all results in a single index causing problems? Each run contains a unique identifier which you can use to filter when building Kibana dashboards.
