Will buckets created in single cluster be replicated across multi-sites when it is migrated to multi-site cluster?
I briefly tested it which appears not being replicated. Can anyone confirm if it’s the case?

Splunk server.conf in version 7.2:

constrain_singlesite_buckets = <boolean>
* Only valid for mode=master and is only used if multisite is true.
* Specifies whether the cluster keeps single-site buckets within one site
  in multisite clustering.
* When this setting is "true", buckets in a single site cluster do not
  replicate outside of their site. The buckets follow 'replication_factor'
  'search factor' policies rather than 'site_replication_factor'
  'site_search_factor' policies. This is to mimic the behavior of
  single-site clustering.
* When this setting is "false", buckets in non-multisite clusters can
  replicate across sites, and must meet the specified
  'site_replication_factor' and 'site_search_factor' policies.
* Default: true

Support has been added apparently...

Currently we do not have this capability.

In the upcoming major release this capability may be added .
