Elasticsearch.hosts config

The docs for the new elasticsearch.hosts config says:

The URLs of the Elasticsearch instances to use for all your queries. All nodes listed here must be on the same cluster

I have 4 cluster that I would like to connect to the same kibana instance. Will the new config allow to achieve this?

Do you have 4 separate clusters or a 4-node cluster? If it is one cluster with 4 nodes this is the setting to use. If you have 4 separate clusters you need to look at cross-cluster search.

@Christian_Dahlqvist thanks. I have 4 separate clusters and I hoped that the new config was bypassing the need to use remote cluster connections.

No, it allows to specify multiple nodes within a single cluster. This removes the need for a load balancer or coordinating only node.
