Unable to change default index used by 'All messages' stream

(Jo ) #1

Continuing the discussion from Unable to change default index in Graylog2:

Is there a way to get around this?I’m using Graylog 2.3.0

(Sachin) #2

You can change the name of the default index in the server.conf file.
elasticsearch_index_prefix = graylog

Changing the server.conf file doesn’t work

(Sachin) #4

That you need to do when you install Graylog and before starting it for the first time.

I’ve tried that. Even deleted the the index and restarted - no changes. Read somewhere on the documentation that these settings were moved to the database so I changed from the web interface which alters the number of shards but not the index name.

check the version you use and the documentation


In addition we have identified a bug in the GUI that will be fixed in 2.4

Thanks @jan - I solved it by updating the entry directly in the database

(Jan Doberstein) #8

you could have used the API which is working. It is only the GUI that is broken.
