AWS ELB/ALB ECE Proxy Configuration

(Chad Hanson) #1

Looking for guidance on setting up an AWS ELB/ALB for my ECE proxy traffic routing to a kibana instance running in the cluster. I have read through the document below on setting up a Route 53 wildcard CNAME to allow for example *.mydomain.com and forward that traffic to my AWS ELB. I also have a requirement for SSL/TLS certificate encryption. I would also like to setup a DNS record for the cluster name so that my customers do not have to remember the long cluster name of 255e2c6646db4af1996161623133cdf1.mydomain.com:9243 and cloud have my customer go to an address like kibana.mydomain.com instead.

Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately if you use DNS you have to append the cluster id via the X-Found-Cluster header ... really to get "alias URLs" you have to use a reverse proxy (like nginx)
