Secured setting for azure repository in ES 5.4


#1

Hi,

We are using Elasticsearch 5.4 in production and planning to use snapshot API and store it in Azure. I see the secured settings only in master branch. So isn't it available in 5.4 version? Any idea how to take care of security as we need to mention account name and key in elasticsearch.yml file, which is not good practice.

Thanks in advance.

The azure secure settings will likely be in 6.1 (it is in master and the 6.x branch). Since this will not be released for a while, one intermediate solution is to use prompting. This obviously requires starting up elasticsearch in an interactive way, or automating the input:
