How to get elaticsearch access logs

(rajasekaran) #1

Hi Team,

I am using elaticsearch 5.1.1 I would like to track my elasticsearch access logs. I tried with Shield but it is not supported for ES 5.X. Please give some suggestions how to get my elasticsearch access logs in my /var/log/elasticsearch/ path.

ES version: 5.1.1
JDK: 1.8
OS: Ubuntu 16.04

What you require here is Sheild which is now called Security. This comes with X-Pack.
The auditing you desire to enable can be found here:

If I misunderstood the query and you actually want to ingest your Elasticsearch logs into Elasticsearch, do confirm.
