Error when i try to modify the retention strategies


I have a problem when i try to modify the retention strategies of Graylog.
Indeed, when i go to System > Indices and try to edit the Default Index Set or create a new Index Set, i have this error :
« Could not retrieve retention strategies
Fetching retention strategies failed: Error: cannot GET http://…:12900/system/indices/rotation/strategies (404) »

I am using Graylog v2.3.0-1.alpha.1 and have just one nodes.

When i check my retention configuration on mongodb :

db.cluster_config.find({“type”: “”}).pretty()
"_id" : ObjectId(“57adcb252e642bced5d63586”),
“type” : “”,
“payload” : {
“rotation_strategy” : “org.graylog2.indexer.rotation.strategies.MessageCountRotationStrategy”,
“retention_strategy” : “org.graylog2.indexer.retention.strategies.DeletionRetentionStrategy”
“last_updated” : “2016-08-12T13:12:05.243Z”,
“last_updated_by” : “cc5c359c-a5ad-476f-b1f1-31e4de730246”

Do you have any idea for why i can’t edit my default retention strategy ?

Thanks for help,

hej @jcharlescz

please pst this as Bug Report over at Github. This alpha is not made for production, this is made for testing and sending feedback to the developers.

This has been fixed in Graylog 2.3.0-alpha.2:


Thanks you for your help jan & jochen.

@jochen : I have download the latest deb of graylog but my graylog stay at the 2.3.0-1.alpha.1 version. Do you have any idea why ?

Maybe some caching proxy between the package server and your systems? contains the correct packages.
