Connect to Elasticsearch (ELK)

Updated 6 months ago by Michael Cretzman

The first step in using Elasticsearch (ELK) with Harness is to set up an Elasticsearch Verification Provider in Harness.

A Harness Verification Provider is a connection to monitoring tools, such as Elasticsearch. Once Harness is connected, you can use Harness 24/7 Service Guard and Deployment Verification with your Elasticsearch data and analysis.

Before You Begin

Step 1: Add Elasticsearch (ELK) Verification Provider

To add Elasticsearch as a Harness Verification Provider, do the following:

  1. In Harness, click Setup.
  2. Click Connectors, and then click Verification Providers.
  3. Click Add Verification Provider, and select ELK. The Add ELK Verification Provider dialog for your provider appears.

Step 2: Display Name

Enter a display name for the provider. If you are going to use multiple providers of the same type, ensure you give each provider a different name.

Step 3: URL

Enter the URL of the server. The format is http(s)://server:port/. The default port is 9200.

Step 4: Username and Encrypted Password

For secrets and other sensitive settings, select or create a new Harness Encrypted Text secret.

Enter the credentials to authenticate with the server.

Step 5: Token

For secrets and other sensitive settings, select or create a new Harness Encrypted Text secret.

Some systems provide Elasticsearch as a service and use access tokens.If you have token based authentication, provide the authentication header that is passed when making the HTTP request.

Header: APITokenKey. Example: x-api-key (varies by system).

Value: APITokenValue. Example: kdsc3h3hd8wngdfujr23e23e2.

Step 6: Usage Scope

Usage scope is inherited from the secrets used in the settings.

If you selected None in Authentication, then you can scope this connection to Harness Applications and Environments.
