Facets based on membership data


(Michael) #1

I'm still getting my head around all things elastic but I was wondering if
elasticsearch is able and suitable to provide faceted search in this example

Say I import the logs from a server and want to match the username field
with additional data like role membership (user, super-user, admin, domain
admin) which isn't necessarily kept in elastic search for reasons of
security.

Would it be possible to have facets that use the membership hierarchy so I
could only return the super-users found in the server logs but ES would
query an external system for the actual userids that are members of that
role?

Unfortunately, an external lookup like you describe is not currently
supported. For now, you'll need to pull data into ES to perform all
faceting/aggregations.
