  1. From the Header Bar Menu, go to the Dashboard panel.
  2. On the side navigation, select Explore.
  3. On the connection filter, select Elasticsearch.


If there is no Elasticsearch connection available, you will be prompted to create one.

Connection Name and Elasticsearch nodes are the only required fields in the form. Username and Password fields are only needed if your need to securely connect to an Elasticsearch cluster.

You can add multiple Elasticsearch nodes in the same connection.

  1. From the Header Bar Menu, go to the Admin panel.
  2. On the side navigation, select Groups.
