we are using the Elastic Web Crawler. In our environment we have a lot of websites to crawl with different extraction rules, schedules etc. It is a lot of manual work to configure this with the Kibana GUI and a staging between non-prod and prod environments is nearly impossible and also a backup is hard.
Unfortunately the Elastic Web Crawler has'nt an API - and it is not an option to use the App Search Crawler, because we need access to Elasticsearch indices and alyo content extraction.

Dies anybody know a good approach to avoid manually configuration of the Elastic Web Crawler? Is there an hidden API or any other approach to transport configuration between different stages or environments?
