Using a different Index other than Heartbeat-7.0.0

Hey dear Elastic-Team,

The documentation gives following specification about how the index should be named for uptime App.

Kibana 7.0 requires an index of heartbeat-7* (containing documents from Heartbeat 7.0).

And im using Heartbeat but have a different name for my index so im not able to use the Uptime App.
Is it possible to use a different index name than Heartbeat-7* for the Uptime-App ? Or is this currently not possible ?

Thanks for any response

Hi, @PeterPain

I have the same doubt about Uptime. It would be nice to configure it like Infrastructure & Logs (Elastic Doc).

Regards :vulcan_salute:

id want this flexibility too in a similar way to the Infrastructure settings. But have worked with whats there ... cant have everything all at once

Have you tried an index alias

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-aliases.html

Perhaps that will work for you...

Hey Stephen,

Thanks for your response. Using an Alias for my Indices worked !
Easy and nice solution by using following syntax:

POST /_aliases
{
    "actions" : [
        { "add" : { "index" : "all_your_indices*", "alias" : "heartbeat-7" } }
    ]
}
