Stopping ILMedit

The ILM service can be paused such that no further steps will be executed using the Stop API.

POST _ilm/stop

When stopped, all further policy actions will be halted. This will be reflected in the Status API

{
  "operation_mode": "STOPPING"
}

The ILM service will then, asynchronously, run all policies to a point where it is safe to stop. After ILM verifies that it is safe, it will move to the STOPPED mode.

{
  "operation_mode": "STOPPED"
}
