Elastic search snapshot or re feed data from mysqlserver

I have to migrate from elastic server to aws elastic service, So what approach should I finalize while migrating and what is the difference between both the approaches ?.

Approach 1. take a snapshot of running elastic cluster from sever and restore to elastic service through curl.

Approach 2.Refeed data through MySQL Database server.

Does elastic maintain searching metadata which would get skipped if I use approach 2?

I'd prefer solution 2 so you can also migrate to the latest version like 6.6.1 and benefit from all its goodnesses.

BTW did you look at https://www.elastic.co/cloud and https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01N6YCISK ?

Cloud by elastic is one way to have access to all features, all managed by us. Think about what is there yet like Security, Monitoring, Reporting, SQL, Canvas, APM, Logs UI, Infra UI and what is coming next :slight_smile: ...
