Modify the order in which routing filters are evaluated for log ingestion into indexed or non-indexed partitions. Routing filters for non-indexed partitions are evaluated first, followed by indexed partitions. The default indexed partition is always the last partition into which logs are ingested, if no other routing filter matches.
