This flag only functions within the scope of snapshot selection.

Add a snapshot (or snapshots) by name at the command-line. Snapshots added with the --snapshot flag will not be filtered by any of the other snapshot selection flags. The snapshot must exist. This flag can be used in lieu of filtering from the list of all snapshots. This flag can be invoked multiple times.


  • --snapshot Include the named snapshot in the list. Can be invoked multiple times.


Include snapshot_name as one of the snapshots to be shown in addition to the provided criteria:

curator show snapshots --repository REPO --prefix curator --snapshot snapshot_name

Delete only snapshots snap1 and snap2:

curator delete snapshots --repository REPO --snapshot snap1 --snapshot snap2
