This API resumes an auto-follow pattern that has been paused with the pause auto-follow pattern API. When this API returns, the auto-follow pattern will resume configuring following indices for newly created indices on the remote cluster that match its patterns. Remote indices created while the pattern was paused will also be followed, unless they have been deleted or closed in the meantime.
