Send logs to Elasticsearch®

You can store logs from one of your Aiven services in an external Elasticsearch service.

Collect these values for the connection:

ELASTICSEARCH_USERUser name to access the Elasticsearch service.
ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORDPassword to access the Elasticsearch service.
ELASTICSEARCH_HOSTHTTPS service host of your external Elasticsearch service.
ELASTICSEARCH_PORTPort to use for the connection.
CA_CERTIFICATECA certificate in PEM structure, if necessary.
CONNECTION_NAMEName of this external connection to be used with Aiven services.

Create external Elasticsearch integration

Start by setting up an external service integration for Elasticsearch.

  1. Log in to the Aiven Console.
  2. In the project, click Integration endpoints.
  3. Select External Elasticsearch from the list.
  4. Select Add new endpoint.
  5. Set a preferred endpoint name, we'll call it CONNECTION_NAME later.
  6. In the connection URL field set the connection string in a format https://ELASTICSEARCH_USER:ELASTICSEARCH_PASSWORD@ELASTICSEARCH_HOST:ELASTICSEARCH_PORT, using your own values for those parameters.
  7. Set desired index prefix, that doesn't overlap with any of already existing indexes in your Elasticsearch service.
  8. Optional: Add the body of your CA certificate in PEM format.
  9. Click Create.
