SSL auth when getting data


(Billy Newman) #1

I am new to elasticsearch so please go easy :wink:

I am just getting started with using it and I want to see if it can help
with my problem. There are a number of restful resources on my system and
other systems that I would like to access and scrap the data back into my
elasticsearch index. A couple questions come to mind:

  1. I believe that the way to accomplish this is through a 'River'. If
    that is true is their already a river plugin written that can hit a URL and
    index the data?

  2. My URLs are SSL. So when I go to https://server.com/resource is there a
    way using the river that I can present a certificate?

Thanks for getting me started, I appreciate it.

Sorry, I can't endorse platform specific SSL solutions. You should find a
SSO solution that you can then bend into your platforms. The benefits of
SSO are unequivocal for users, sysadmins, and audit trails.
Atlassian Crowd can be a quick trial evaluation. If your certificates are
to be published....some people will report them if not valid. And Mozilla
and Microsoft will cache them ... remotely.
