How to call elasticsearch using classic asp and JQuery

(william crawley) #1

HI All,

I have elasticsearch 5.5.1 working with xpack. If I make a call to one of my indexs via postman setting the authorization to basic and providing the username and password I receive the correct data as expected.

I now move the same search into an ajax call in the following way in a classic asp page.

<script language="text/javascript" runat="server">

var username="elastic";
var password="changeme";

function elasticTest() {
    url: 'http://myserver:9200/myindex/_search?q="testtext"',
    type: 'GET',
        beforeSend: function (xhr){ 
                xhr.setRequestHeader('Authorization', "Basic " + btoa(username + ":" + password)); 
        success: function(data) {
        error: function(xhr,ajaxOptions,throwError) {


I have ensured through IIS, the user 'elastic' has permissions to the site. When it hit's the runat=server line, It crashes with the user doesn't have the correct security permissions. If I leave this the runat=server command off, then it doesn't run at all.
