Elastic search index folder names encrypted

In the old version of Elastic search (2.3.2) the index folder names were something like "<index_name>_<Peoplesoft_system_name>". Some of the troubleshooting steps to resolving a bunch of issues with elastic search require you to stop the elastic search service, and manually delete the troublesome index folder from the elastic search server. In 2.3.2 this was pretty straight forward.

In the new version of Elastic Search (6.1.2) the index folder names are now encrypted like "dLBmOSQhRYqybp1j6GUOxA". Is there's any way to determine which encrypted index folder corresponds to the index and system that they are being created.


If there are more than one PeopleSoft system connected to a single Elastic Search instance, Will you have to delete all of the indexes from the elastic search server, and then re-run all of the index jobs in all of the peoplesoft systems just to resolve a problem with ONE index in one system?

Is there a way to identify which encrypted Index folder in the "pt\elasticsearch6.1.2\data\nodes\0\indices" folder corresponds with an index in a specific peoplesoft system?
