Target daily index in index_payload action

Is there a way to target a daily index from Watcher's index_payload action

something like this

"actions" : {
    "index_payload" : { 
    "transform": { ... },
    "index" : {
      "index" : "my-index-{{year}}.{{month}}.{{day}}", 
      "doc_type" : "my-type" 


yes, you can use date math for your index names.

I'll move this over to the watcher forum as well.


ok thanks for the hint.
I managed to find a slightly better reference.

so that gives an index definition that looks like this

"index": {
  "index": "<my-index-{now/d}>",
  "doc_type": "my-type"
