Connecting to elasticsearch from external application

1. Describe your incident:
I’m attempting to figure out if it’s possible to query the elasticsearch instance that runs on the datanode from outside of Graylog. I can hit it, but cannot auth to it and I’m unsure where it gets it’s username/password. I’ve tried the admin/root/default sorts of passwords that I have for Graylog and nothing works.

2. Describe your environment:

  • OS Information: Docker running on Debain 10

  • Package Version: 5.2

  • Service logs, configurations, and environment variables:

3. What steps have you already taken to try and solve the problem?

  • Used all the passwords/usernames that I know of against my instance @ port 9200.
  • Searched the docs for elastic password setup.

4. How can the community help?

  • Let me know if this is a supported usage and how I can find the auth info for the elastic instance.

No not currently, there will be a way to do it for certain uses cases in 6.0.
