BigDesk: Persist the ES endpoint?


(Steinar Bang) #1

Is there a way to persist the ES endpoint of BigDesk?

I'm using nginx to forward port 9000 to a sub-path,
eg. http://ip-number/elasticsearch/ instead of http://ip-number:9200 and
when I Disconnect and Connect after a node restart, what's in the ES
endpoint textbox is http://ip-number (no port number).

Thanks!

Hi,
In this case I usually instruct Bigdesk about node endpoint URL via
'endpoint' URL patameter. It is documented on web or github.

So you will end up using URL like the following example:

http://bigdesk.org/v/2.2.0/index.html?endpoint=http://complete_path_to_your_endpoint&connect=true

You can bookmark this URL and it will autoconnect the bigdesk plugin to
endpoint at specified location.

It is recommend to URL encode the endpoint parameter value.

HTH,
If you are missing features, feel free to open ticket (it is good time for
that right now).

Indeed it is... https://github.com/lukas-vlcek/bigdesk/#url-parameters

("Ooh... there's documentation...?" :slight_smile: )

(To quote a friend of mine: Real men don't read documentation... and
neither does women... they just tidy the documentation away, so that the
men can't find it when they get desperate...)

So you will end up using URL like the following example:

http://bigdesk.org/v/2.2.0/index.html?endpoint=http://complete_path_to_your_endpoint&connect=true

Yup, that worked fine;
http://ip-number/elasticsearch/_plugin/bigdesk/?endpoint=http://ip-number/elasticsearch/

Thanks!

You can bookmark this URL and it will autoconnect the bigdesk plugin to
endpoint at specified location.

Yes, or just leave a tab open on the URL (which is what I've been
doing), and not have to retype the ES REST endpoint when I restart ES.

It is recommend to URL encode the endpoint parameter value.

If you are missing features, feel free to open ticket (it is good time for
that right now).

Ok, here is an enhancement request: https://github.com/lukas-vlcek/bigdesk/issues/45

Thanks!
