Most configuration changes can be made safely from other parts of the Cloud UI. You should use the Advanced cluster configuration page to make changes only if the functionality is not available elsewhere and if you know what you are doing or are being directed by someone from Elastic.
To edit the cluster configuration directly:
- Log into the Cloud UI.
- Click on a cluster name from the Clusters panel and click Manage.
- In the Advanced Cluster Configuration section, click the link to edit the configuration.
Edit the configuration:
- The contents of the Plan section describe your current configuration, such as the current capacity, the node count, the installed Elasticsearch version, and so forth. You can manually edit the configuration.
- The Data section describes additional parts of your cluster, such as its name, whether snapshots are enabled, security information, and whether Kibana is enabled.
- Click Save for the sections that you modified to apply the new configuration. You should receive a message that your new configuration is successful.
You can break things when editing the cluster configuration direction. Use this functionality only if you know what you are doing or if you are being directed by someone from Elastic.
