Automation for ELK

I am using ELK for our application.
Each time I have to do everything manually.
Can anybody guide for automation?
What is the approach? scripts or docker?
What all those things can be automated?
Any samples?


What are you currently doing manually, i.e. what kind of automation are you looking for?

Manual things I have to go through on any new environment:

Install ES on 3 nodes
Configure yml file
Install logstash on another machines and make configurations in logstash.conf
Install nGinx, redis
Install filebeat and do configurations.
Install kibana.

You should look into a configuration management tool like Ansible, Chef, Puppet, CFEngine, or SaltStack. I'm a very happy Ansible user myself.
