Elastic Search Data Integrator - Using index patterns as indices ?


Hello all, we have a problem that our Splunk's Elastic Search Integrator addon is using a forbidenn character inside it's Splunk index due to connecting to a "frontend" cluster. Let me explain.

The problem is that they have a “frontend” cluster which uses index patterns to search between clusters. This is also the cluster which’s endpoint is connected to our Elasticsearch Data Integrator app for Splunk. The “backend” cluster is the one containing our index.

So the infrastructe is like this:

Cluster Backend > Cluster Frontend > Splunk’s addon

Backend’s Cluster index: security-audit-XXX

Frontend’s cluster index pattern: *:security-audit-*

As it is stated in Elastic's documentation here, the use of colon (:) inside index is forbidden. However we are using it and index pattern. Does anybody have any suggestions how to tackle this ?
