WARNING: Version 6.2 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
A rollover request in Elasticsearch 6.2.0 or later will be aborted if the same alias is found in the matching index templates. This change is to prevent the alias from pointing to multiple indices during rollover. If your index templates already contain the same alias, you should remove it by updating the index templates.
