Rolloveredit

action: rollover
description: >-
  Rollover the index associated with alias 'aliasname', which should be in the
  form of prefix-000001 (or similar), or prefix-YYYY.MM.DD-1.
options:
  name: aliasname
  conditions:
    max_age: 1d
    max_docs: 1000000
    max_size: 5gb

This action uses the Elasticsearch Rollover API to create a new index, if any of the described conditions are met.

Important

When choosing conditions, any one of max_age, max_docs, max_size, or any combination of the three may be used. If multiple are used, then the specified condition for any one of them must be matched for the rollover to occur.

Warning

If one or more of the max_age, max_docs, or max_size options are present, they must each have a value. Because there are no default values, none of these conditions can be left empty, or Curator will generate an error.

Extra settingsedit

The extra_settings option allows the addition of extra index settings (but not mappings). An example of how these settings can be used might be:

action: rollover

    max_docs: 1000000
  extra_settings:
    index.number_of_shards: 3
    index.number_of_replicas: 1
  timeout_override:
  continue_if_exception: False
  disable_action: False
