wait_for_completionedit

Note

This setting is used by the allocation, cluster_routing, reindex, replicas, restore, and snapshot actions.

This setting must be either True or False.

This setting specifies whether or not the request should return immediately or wait for the operation to complete before returning.

action: snapshot

  wait_for_completion: True
  max_wait: 3600
  wait_interval: 10
filters:
- filtertype: ...

The default value for the snapshot action is True.

Tip

During snapshot initialization, information about all previous snapshots is loaded into the memory, which means that in large repositories it may take several seconds (or even minutes) for this command to return even if the wait_for_completion setting is set to False.
