Description

By default, put snapshot repository API requests verify that a snapshot is functional on all master and data nodes in the cluster.

You can skip this verification using the put snapshot repository API’s verify parameter. You can then use the verify snapshot repository API to manually verify the repository.

If verification is successful, the verify snapshot repository API returns a list of nodes connected to the snapshot repository. If verification failed, the API returns an error.
