I need to ensure that soft_deletes be enabled when an index is created using the Reflections option. This will enable index replication in the ElasticSearch. Any suggestions?
You cannot provide custom index settings for Reflection jobs (as of now). However, as per Elasticsearch docs, it appears to be enabled by default.
Thanks for the help. I sorted this out. I used ES 6.8.0 which does not have this option enabled by default. So I created a template with soft-delete option and uploaded into ES. That solved my issue.
