Describe the issue:
.opendistro-ism-config seems to be hidden from a regular
/_cat/indices request, but you can see it by using the
If I had altered the configuration of ISM and had suffered (for example) a total loss of data, I might want to restore all my data from an S3 snapshot. In that case I would have to reconfigure my ISM policies myself, unless the configuration was also backed up.
My question is, does that make sense? Should I be backing up semi-hidden indices like this and what happens if I restore them over the top of the default (e.g. disaster revovery, post cluster creation, trying to reach previous state?)
Bonus question, what else might I need to backup to ensure I have the full ISM functionality I would expect and can such restoration be fully seamless?
