Have indices in Elasticsearch? This is the tool for you!
Like a museum curator manages the exhibits and collections on display, Elasticsearch Curator helps you curate, or manage your indices.
Curator is breaking into version dependent releases. Curator 6.x will work with Elasticsearch 6.x, Curator 7.x will work with Elasticsearch 7.x, and when it is released, Curator 8.x will work with Elasticsearch 8.x.
Watch this space for updates when that is coming.
New Client Configuration
Curator now connects using the
es_client Python module. This separation makes it much easier
to update the client connection portion separate from Curator. It is largely derived from the
original Curator client configuration, but with important updates.
The updated configuration file structure requires
elasticsearch at the root level:
--- elasticsearch: client: hosts: https://10.11.12.13:9200 cloud_id: bearer_auth: opaque_id: request_timeout: 60 http_compress: verify_certs: ca_certs: client_cert: client_key: ssl_assert_hostname: ssl_assert_fingerprint: ssl_version: other_settings: master_only: skip_version_test: username: password: api_key: id: api_key: logging: loglevel: INFO logfile: /path/to/file.log logformat: default blacklist: 
Action File Configuration
Action file structure is unchanged, for now. A few actions may have had the options modified a bit.
