Trying to delete old indices using curator. I have indices in the following format:
{name}-{%m%d}. For example: "john-0709" or "jane-0702". Here is my action file:
        action: delete_indices

               # - filtertype: pattern
               # kind: prefix
               # value: .kibana
              #  exclude:  True
              - filtertype: pattern
                kind: prefix
                value: john

              - filtertype: age
                source: name
                direction: older
                timestring: '%m%d'
                unit: days
                unit_count: 10


However, it ends up deleting all indices (--dry-run) irrespective of the date.
What am I missing?
