Snapshot support?

According to the feature page for Index Management, this plugin is supposed to allow managing snapshots however I do not see that under the list of actions in the documentation… Was this feature planned and not completed? Or am I missing something?

I want to be able to create new snapshots and delete old ones after x days basically.

Actually, it is implemented here: Snapshot implementation by dabr-grapeup · Pull Request #135 · opendistro-for-elasticsearch/index-management · GitHub

Waiting for work it looks like. Interesting that the homepage still suggests this feature support is live.

Hi @chaos,

Correct, snapshot isn’t implemented/merged in yet. Will update the feature page, thanks.

Hi @dbbaughe,

Just wondering if this has been implemented? Is there a way to check the status on github ?(I’m not too familiar with it)


Hi @petitcon,

The Snapshot PR was merged recently. It will go out in the next release (ODFE 1.8) which is being worked on right now.
