ElasticSearch Encryption

I am new to elastic search.
I want to encrypt all the data that I have saved in indices, my confusion is that, if I encrypt the data will I able to search for data or not? what approach should I follow to encrypt the data and search that?

No. If you store encrypted data in elasticsearch you won't be able to run a full text search on it.

Thanks for your quick reply.
Do you have any idea if I use AWS KMS for elastic search, will that encrypt my data or they just encrypt disk?

Probably the disk.
