Set priorityedit

Phases allowed: hot, warm, cold.

Sets the priority of the index as soon as the policy enters the hot, warm, or cold phase. Higher priority indices are recovered before indices with lower priorities following a node restart.

Generally, indexes in the hot phase should have the highest value and indexes in the cold phase should have the lowest values. For example: 100 for the hot phase, 50 for the warm phase, and 0 for the cold phase. Indices that don’t set this value have a default priority of 1.


(Required, integer) The priority for the index. Must be 0 or greater. Set to null to remove the priority.
