Elasticsearch - 6.8 and earlier

❗️ Warning
The information on this page pertains to support Elasticsearch versions 6.8 and earlier. Please refer to Elasticsearch for information about more recent versions.

Connecting to Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is accessible over HTTPS, with HTTPS basic authentication.

📘 Tip
Elasticsearch databases deployed on Aptible use a valid certificate for their host, so you're encouraged to verify the certificate when connecting.


Some Elasticsearch plugins may be installed on-request. Contact Aptible Support if you need a particular plugin.


Elasticsearch Databases can be configured with Elasticsearch's Cluster Update Settings API. Changes made to "persistent" settings will persist across Database restarts.

Deploy will automatically set the JVM heap size to 50% of the container's memory allocation, per Elastic's recommendation.

Connection Security

Aptible Elasticsearch Databases support connections via the following protocols:

  • For all Elasticsearch versions: SSLv3, TLSv1.0, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2
