What's the status on _ttl?

Can I still use it until there's a new implementation? Is it working?

See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/2.4/mapping-ttl-field.html

I've seen this, but the message is not clear. The feature is deprecated until something new comes in place, but being deprecated doesn't state if the current feature still works somehow, or if it doesn't work anymore. I have a use-case where I cannot use index-per-timeframe, so TTL is needed.

It works but expect it to be removed in the future, that is what deprecated means :slight_smile:

Ok. Thanks for the clarification. I've seen deprecated being used for something that is present but doesn't do anything anymore, that's why I had to ask.
