Updating custom templates to support Integrations Serveredit

Custom deployment templates should be updated in order to support Integrations Server. While system-owned deployment templates are updated automatically during the ECE upgrade process, user-created deployment templates require a manual update.

To manually update your custom deployment templates to support Integrations Server:

  1. Obtain a list of all existing deployment templates by sending the following GET request, and take note of the id of the template you wish to update.

    curl -k -X GET -H "Authorization: ApiKey $ECE_API_KEY" https://${COORDINATOR_HOST}:12443/api/v1/deployments/templates?region=ece-region
  2. Copy the template you’d like to update and add an integrations_server entry under the deployment_template.resources section of the JSON. The result should look like the following:

    "integrations_server" : [
        "ref_id" : "integrations_server-ref-id",
        "elasticsearch_cluster_ref_id" : "main-elasticsearch",
        "region" : "ece-region",
        "plan" : {
          "cluster_topology" : [
              "instance_configuration_id" : "integrations.server",
              "size" : {
                "value" : 512,
                "resource" : "memory"
              "zone_count" : 1
          "integrations_server" : {

Send a PUT request with the updated template in the payload to replace the original template with the new one. Remember that:

  • The following request is just an example; other resources in the request payload should remain unchanged (they have been truncated in the example).
  • You need to replace {template_id} in the URL with the id that you collected in Step 1.

Refer to set deployment template API for more details.

                    "zone_count": 1
                "integrations_server": {}
  "system_owned": false

After the template is updated, you can start creating new deployments.
