  Is it possible to pause the Elasticsearch Snapshot (backup) feature enabled during install?

Environment

  AXA 17.3 On Premise 

Resolution

Yes, to pause the Snapshot feature, execute an HTTP POST to the Server running the Jarvis process:
http(s)://<Jarvis_hostname_or_IP_address>:8080/kron/groups/elasticsearch/jobs/ES-Snapshot?state=pause

To resume, the Snapshot POST...
http(s)://<Jarvis_hostname_or_IP_address>:8080/kron/groups/elasticsearch/jobs/ES-Snapshot?state=resume

Both commands should return a 200 response if successful.
