Question:
  Is it possible to pause the Elasticsearch Snapshot (backup) feature enabled during install?
Environment:
  AXA 17.3 On Premise 
Answer:
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.
