Index Lifecycle Management (ILM)

class elasticsearch.client.IlmClient(client)
Parameters:

client (BaseClient)

delete_lifecycle(*, name, error_trace=None, filter_path=None, human=None, master_timeout=None, pretty=None, timeout=None)

Deletes the specified lifecycle policy definition. A currently used policy cannot be deleted.

Parameters:
  • name (str) – Identifier for the policy.

  • master_timeout (Literal[-1] | ~typing.Literal[0] | str | None) – Period to wait for a connection to the master node. If no response is received before the timeout expires, the request fails and returns an error.

  • timeout (Literal[-1] | ~typing.Literal[0] | str | None) – Period to wait for a response. If no response is received before the timeout expires, the request fails and returns an error.

  • error_trace (bool | None)

  • human (bool | None)

  • pretty (bool | None)

Return type:

ObjectApiResponse[Any]

explain_lifecycle(*, index, error_trace=None, filter_path=None, human=None, master_timeout=None, only_errors=None, only_managed=None, pretty=None, timeout=None)

Retrieves information about the index’s current lifecycle state, such as the currently executing phase, action, and step.

https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/8.14/ilm-explain-lifecycle.html

Parameters:
  • index (str) – Comma-separated list of data streams, indices, and aliases to target. Supports wildcards (*). To target all data streams and indices, use * or _all.

  • master_timeout (Literal[-1] | ~typing.Literal[0] | str | None) – Period to wait for a connection to the master node. If no response is received before the timeout expires, the request fails and returns an error.

  • only_errors (bool | None) – Filters the returned indices to only indices that are managed by ILM and are in an error state, either due to an encountering an error while executing the policy, or attempting to use a policy that does not exist.

  • only_managed (bool | None) – Filters the returned indices to only indices that are managed by ILM.

  • timeout (Literal[-1] | ~typing.Literal[0] | str | None) – Period to wait for a response. If no response is received before the timeout expires, the request fails and returns an error.

  • error_trace (bool | None)

  • pretty (bool | None)

Return type:

ObjectApiResponse[Any]

get_status(*, error_trace=None, filter_path=None, human=None, pretty=None)

Retrieves the current index lifecycle management (ILM) status.
