Unclear documentation for xpack....flush_interval

The latest docs https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/x-pack/current/auditing.html
for the options of xpack I want to set a value for xpack.security.audit.index.flush_interval

but is it milliseconds, seconds or a string like '4s' this is not clear from the doc


Indeed, this is not clear. The settings accepts a TimeValue something like 1s (which is also the default).

It would be great if you either filed an issue in the elasticsearch repo or even better a pull request that mentions this. The file in question is here (and you can even directly create a PR, if you have a github account) https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/blob/master/x-pack/docs/en/security/auditing/output-index.asciidoc
