Install the S3 plugin

How you create the AWS S3 bucket depends on what version of the Elasticsearch S3 plugin you are using.

  • For version 5.x, installing the plugin creates an S3 bucket for you.
  • For versions 6.x and later:

    1. Using the Minio browser or an S3 client application, create an S3 bucket to store your snapshots. TIP: Don’t forget to make the bucket name DNS-friendly, e.g. no underscores or uppercase letters. For more details, read the bucket restrictions.
    2. Log into the Cloud UI and add the S3 repository plugin to your cluster.
