A subset of Elasticsearch settings. TIP: To define the complete set of Elasticsearch settings, use ElasticsearchSystemSettings with user_settings_override* and user_settings*.


auto_create_index (boolean)
If true (the default), then any write operation on an index that does not currently exist will create it. NOTES: (Corresponds to the parameter 'action.auto_create_index')
default_shards_per_index (integer as int32)
(2.x only - to get the same result in 5.x template mappings must be used) Sets the default number of shards per index, defaulting to 1 if not specified. (Corresponds to the parameter 'index.number_of_shards' in 2.x, not supported in 5.x)
destructive_requires_name (boolean)
If true (default is false) then the index deletion API will not support wildcards or '_all'. NOTES: (Corresponds to the parameter 'action.destructive_requires_name')
enable_close_index (boolean)
Defaults to false on versions <= 7.2.0, true otherwise. If false, then the API commands to close indices are disabled. This is important because Elasticsearch does not snapshot or migrate close indices on versions under 7.2.0, therefore standard Elastic Cloud configuration operations will cause irretrievable loss of indices' data. NOTES: (Corresponds to the parameter 'cluster.indices.close.enable')
monitoring_collection_interval (integer as int32)
The default interval at which monitoring information from the cluster if collected, if monitoring is enabled. NOTES: (Corresponds to the parameter 'marvel.agent.interval' in 2.x and 'xpack.monitoring.collection.interval' in 5.x)
monitoring_history_duration (string)
The duration for which monitoring history is stored (format '(NUMBER)d' eg '3d' for 3 days). NOTES: ('Corresponds to the parameter xpack.monitoring.history.duration' in 5.x, defaults to '7d')
reindex_whitelist (array[string])
Limits remote Elasticsearch clusters that can be used as the source for '_reindex' API commands
scripting (ElasticsearchScriptingUserSettings)
Controls the languages supported by the Elasticsearch cluster, such as Painless, Mustache, and Expressions. Controls how the languages are used, such as file, index, and inline. TIP: For complex configurations, leave these blank and configure these settings in the user YAML or JSON.
use_disk_threshold (boolean)
DEPRECATED: Use setting 'cluster.routing.allocation.disk.threshold_enabled' in the Elasticsearch API. This value no longer has any effect in this API.
watcher_trigger_engine (string)
The trigger engine for Watcher, defaults to 'scheduler' - see the xpack documentation for more information. NOTES: (Corresponds to the parameter '(xpack.)watcher.trigger.schedule.engine', depending on version. Ignored from 6.x onwards.)
