Freezes an index.
Freezing an index will close the index and reopen it within the same API call. This causes primaries to not be allocated for a short amount of time and causes the cluster to go red until the primaries are allocated again. This limitation might be removed in the future.
- (Required, string) Identifier for the index.
The following example freezes and unfreezes an index:
POST /my_index/_freeze POST /my_index/_unfreeze
