Locking Elasticsearch operations


#1

Hi, everyone =]

I'm using ES on our company, and we're stumbling on an issue:

Is it possible to lock some operations - for example, adding fields to the mapping dynamically or deleting indices/types?

We've had problems with people running tests and misspelling field names and, accidentally, creating them instead - for example.

Thanks!

Shield will help you here, it can prevent or limit all of these sorts of incorrect or malicious requests.

Otherwise, there is nothing native to do this and you need to roll your own solution.
