ElasticSearch – Listing Snapshots in AWS S3

To view the snapshots held in AWS, you should be able to use Kibana. From “Management” navigate to “Snapshot and Restore” and look at the list of snapshots. We, however, get a timeout attempting to view the snapshots. Instead, use the _snapshot ES API endpoint to get the name of the repository:

Then use the name to create the ES API URI to get a list of snapshots in the repository – GET _snapshot/*?verbose=false – you will get a list of snapshots, which indices are included in each snapshot, and a state (SUCCESS or FAILED).
