Empty values and commented lines will result in the default value, if any, being selected. If a setting is set, but not used by a given action, it will be ignored.

This action will snapshot indices to the indicated repository, with a name, or name pattern, as identified by name.

The other options are usually okay to leave at the defaults, but feel free to read about them and change them accordingly.
