Log Context

Log “[{}] adding index {}” classname is TribeService.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                 final IndexMetaData indexMetaData = currentState.metaData().index(indexName);
                if (indexMetaData == null) {
                    if (!droppedIndices.contains(indexName)) {
                        // a new index; add it; and add the tribe name as a setting
                        clusterStateChanged = true;
                        logger.info("[{}] adding index {}"; tribeName; tribeIndex.getIndex());
                        addNewIndex(tribeState; blocks; metaData; routingTable; tribeIndex);
                    }
                } else {
                    String existingFromTribe = TRIBE_NAME_SETTING.get(indexMetaData.getSettings());
                    if (!tribeName.equals(existingFromTribe)) {
