Issue with remote reindex


I am trying to use remote reindex using a remote cluster. My destination cluster is ES&KB 7.6.2, using ROR 1.22.1.
I am using the remote reindex api, an example below:

curl -k --location --request POST 'https://localhost:9200/_reindex?wait_for_completion=true' --header 'Authorization: Basic header' --header 'Content-Type: application/json' --data-raw '{
    "source": {
        "remote": {
            "host": "http://remote-host:9200",
            "username": "username",
            "password": "password",
    "index": "test",
    "size": 1
    "dest": {
        "index": "test_dest"

The issue is that the source index is not being taken into account, so the destination cluster will try to reindex all the documents from the source cluster.
I did the same test uninstalling the ROR plugin, and it worked perfectly fine.

Can you please help me?


Hello, it should be fixed in ROR 1.28.0. Could you please test the latest version of ROR and let us know if your issue is fixed?
