Resets a transform.


POST _transform/<transform_id>/_reset


  • Requires the manage_transform cluster privilege. This privilege is included in the transform_admin built-in role.


Before you can reset the transform, you must stop it; alternatively, use the force query parameter.

If you reset a transform, all checkpoints, states, and the destination index (if it was created by the transform) are deleted. The transform is updated to the latest format as if the Update transform API was used. The transform is ready to start again as if it had just been created.
