Last week I played around with the HCL Connections documentation to backup Elasticsearch in the article Backup Elasticsearch Indices in Component Pack .
In the end I found that I couldn’t get the snapshot restored and that I have to run a command outside of my Kubernetes cluster to get a snapshot on a daily basis. That’s not what I want.
During a migration from Cognos Metrics to Elasticsearch Metrics, I had some issues with the index. So I wanted to create a backup of the already migrated data and start over from scratch.
The official documentation has an article on the topic: Backing up and restoring data for Elasticsearch-based components , but I had to slightly adjust the commands to get a successful snapshot.
