Creating index with named network.bind_host


(Chandramohan Palanisamy) #1

Nutshell: I cannot view the created index with named network.bind_host.

I have setup elasticsearch and then created two indexes. Have no issues and can view/query the index and data using head plugin.

http://localhost:9200/_plugin/head/ --- This worked well

Then I have learned that in order to access elasticsearch from a different applications, I have to expose it by naming network.bind_host.

http://servername:9200/_plugin/head/

Now I am able to access elasticsearch.

The problem comes when I create additional indexes after naming network.bind_host. The newly created indexes are not viewable in head plug-in, and not sure if the index was created also. Have checked the data folder, but could not find any folder for the newly created index.

Please help.

I suspect this is a problem with the Head plugin, and you should follow up with the author of that plugin.

As an aside, site plugins were deprecated and removed from Elasticsearch a long time ago, so you're likely running a very old version. I would look into upgrading to a newer version :slight_smile:

Thanks for the reply.

I have checked with http://servername:9200/_cat/indices?v, but the index created after named network.bind_host is not showing in the list.

On a side note, if I comment the named bind_host in elasticsearch.yml and create the index, it appears.
