Elasticsearch

Connecting to Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is accessible over HTTPS, with HTTPS basic authentication.

Tip

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

Plugins

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

Configuration

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.

Aptible Deploy Elasticsearch Databases support connections via the following protocols:

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