Keep getting FORBIDDEN/10/cluster create-index blocked

Versions (relevant - OpenSearch/Dashboard/Server OS/Browser):

Describe the issue:

I keep getting the below error when I try to create recreate an index after deleting it. It allows me to create it after a while and sometimes it allows creating the index after I try to search it! Why does this happen? is there a way to prevent it?
