It is time to say goodbye: This version of Elastic Cloud Enterprise has reached end-of-life (EOL) and is no longer supported.
The documentation for this version is no longer being maintained. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
If this is your first time using the ECE API, some of the terminology in the JSON output will likely be unfamiliar. For example, there is a reference to the term “plan” in output fields such as
plan_info. A plan is just a resource configuration that gets applied to a resource, such as an Elasticsearch cluster or a Kibana instance. When you change an Elasticsearch cluster to resize it, for example, you are applying a new plan.
A deployment is a group of different resources such as Elasticsearch clusters, Kibana instances and other products of the Elastic Stack.
In the previous example, the
admin-console-elasticsearch deployment only had an Elasticsearch resource, and the
logging-and-metrics deployment had both Elasticsearch and Kibana resources.
