opensearch

Publishes messages into an Elasticsearch index. If the index does not exist then it is created with a dynamic mapping.

Both the id and index fields can be dynamically set using function interpolations described here. When sending batched messages these interpolations are performed per message part.

Performance

This output benefits from sending multiple messages in flight in parallel for improved performance. You can tune the max number of in flight messages (or message batches) with the field max_in_flight.

This output benefits from sending messages as a batch for improved performance. Batches can be formed at both the input and output level. You can find out more in this doc.

Examples

  • Updating Documents

When updating documents the request body should contain a combination of a doc, upsert, and/or script fields at the top level, this should be done via mapping processors.

output:
  processors:
    - mapping: |
        meta id = this.id
        root.doc = this
  opensearch:
    urls: [ TODO ]
    index: foo
    id: ${! @id }
    action: update

Fields

urls

A list of URLs to connect to. If an item of the list contains commas it will be expanded into multiple URLs.

Type: array

# Examples

urls:
  - http://localhost:9200

index

The index to place messages. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string

action

The action to take on the document. This field must resolve to one of the following action types: index, update or delete. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string

id

The ID for indexed messages. Interpolation should be used in order to create a unique ID for each message. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string

# Examples

id: ${!counter()}-${!timestamp_unix()}

pipeline

An optional pipeline id to preprocess incoming documents. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string

Default: ""

routing

The routing key to use for the document. This field supports interpolation functions.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls

Custom TLS settings can be used to override system defaults.

Type: object

tls.enabled

Whether custom TLS settings are enabled.

Type: bool

Default: false

tls.skip_cert_verify

Whether to skip server side certificate verification.

Type: bool

Default: false

tls.enable_renegotiation

Whether to allow the remote server to repeatedly request renegotiation. Enable this option if you’re seeing the error message local error: tls: no renegotiation.

Type: bool

Default: false Requires version 3.45.0 or newer

tls.root_cas

An optional root certificate authority to use. This is a string, representing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas: |-
  -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
  ...
  -----END CERTIFICATE-----

tls.root_cas_file

An optional path of a root certificate authority file to use. This is a file, often with a .pem extension, containing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas_file: ./root_cas.pem

tls.client_certs

A list of client certificates to use. For each certificate either the fields cert and key, or cert_file and key_file should be specified, but not both.

Type: array

Default: []

# Examples

client_certs:
  - cert: foo
    key: bar

client_certs:
  - cert_file: ./example.pem
    key_file: ./example.key

tls.client_certs[].cert

A plain text certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key

A plain text certificate key to use.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].cert_file

The path of a certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key_file

The path of a certificate key to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].password

A plain text password for when the private key is password encrypted in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format. The obsolete pbeWithMD5AndDES-CBC algorithm is not supported for the PKCS#8 format. Warning: Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

password: foo

password: ${KEY_PASSWORD}

max_in_flight

The maximum number of messages to have in flight at a given time. Increase this to improve throughput.

Type: int

Default: 64

basic_auth

Allows you to specify basic authentication.

Type: object

basic_auth.enabled

Whether to use basic authentication in requests.

Type: bool

Default: false

basic_auth.username

A username to authenticate as.

Type: string

Default: ""

basic_auth.password

A password to authenticate with.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

batching

Allows you to configure a batching policy.

Type: object

# Examples

batching:
  byte_size: 5000
  count: 0
  period: 1s

batching:
  count: 10
  period: 1s

batching:
  check: this.contains("END BATCH")
  count: 0
  period: 1m

batching.count

A number of messages at which the batch should be flushed. If 0 disables count based batching.

Type: int

Default: 0

batching.byte_size

An amount of bytes at which the batch should be flushed. If 0 disables size based batching.

Type: int

Default: 0

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

period: 1s

period: 1m

period: 500ms

batching.check

A Bloblang query that should return a boolean value indicating whether a message should end a batch.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

check: this.type == "end_of_transaction"

batching.processors

A list of processors to apply to a batch as it is flushed. This allows you to aggregate and archive the batch however you see fit. Please note that all resulting messages are flushed as a single batch, therefore splitting the batch into smaller batches using these processors is a no-op.

Type: array

# Examples

processors:
  - archive:
