Custom Scripts Re: Python/Java


(Jesse Turner) #1

Is there a way to create scripts within ELK Stack that manipulate data? For instance, if there's a numerical or statistical library in Python that gives insight into some data from an Elastic Search, that I could produce results in Kibana without leaving ELK?

Elasticsearch can be accessed by any programming language using the API, https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.1/docs.html, https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.1/search.html. You could set up your python application to pull data from Elasticsearch and calculate results. Those results could then be stored back in Elasticsearch and displayed with Kibana.

Thanks Nathan. My big issue is the end user won't be able to run whatever statistical test or formula in python by themselves. Is there a way to completely embed the script in ELK without leaving?
