How to make policy of snapshot?

Hello?

From version 1.8.0.0, I found that “Adds snapshot operation to Index State Management,”.
However I cannot find UI or command documents of it.

How can I use it? or where can I find info about managing lifecycle of snapshot?

Hi, can you take a try of the snapshot operation like shown here

That shows how to manually generate a snapshot, but is there a way to configure a policy to do automated nightly snapshots? In the “other” elasticsearch, there is the “_ilm/policy” API that allows you to create a policy for doing automated snapshots. If there is an example of an automated snapshot policy, I’d love a pointer.

Are there plans to implement the a policy UI in Kibana?
