I was under the impression AWS ElasticSearch service comes with automated snapshots/backups. That's what I find in the documentation. It suggests they happen once a day and are stored on s3 but I do not see any backups in any of my s3 buckets. How do you get access to the automated snapshots?

It probably doesn't matter but I used the following template to create my elasticsearch domain explicitly indicating I want automated backups.


"SnapshotOptions": {

    "AutomatedSnapshotStartHour": "0"

There is documentation provided by AWS to restore snapshots:


Also, you can check elactic.co's documentation on Snapshots and Restoring:
