Filebeats to ship data directly to AWS ElasticSearch managed service

Hi all,
I already see threads that depict it as not feasible to send data to AWS ES service, since these posts are about 1 year old, I'd like to ask whether any of you has had success with this approach?

I really can't seem to find any such case online!

Thank you

Filebeat supports sending data to any Elasticsearch cluster protected by Basic Auth over HTTPS, and as far as I know AWS ES does not yet support this. I therefore do not think the situation has changed.

Many thanks @Christian_Dahlqvist, I suppose you are right, but because I came through this thread, I thought maybe its possible.

By basic auth over HTTPS you mean to not supply aws credentials?

Thank you!!

Yes. In order to use AWS credentials you need to use the custom amazon_es output plugin, as also the standard Elasticsearch output plugin does not support this.
