ElastiFlow 5.5 Improves Elasticsearch Output

June 14, 2022

New Features

  • The Elasticsearch output will automatically bootstrap the initial write index and add the rollover alias when EF_FLOW_OUTPUT_ELASTICSEARCH_INDEX_PERIOD is set to rollover. If the ILM lifecycle policy configured in EF_FLOW_OUTPUT_ELASTICSEARCH_INDEX_TEMPLATE_ILM_LIFECYCLE (default is elastiflow) is not found in Elasticsearch, a default policy will be created which deletes data after 7 days. This policy can be changed later using the Kibana UI or Elasticsearch API.
