Access the Elasticsearch API

You can interact with a specific Elasticsearch cluster directly from the Cloud UI without having to authenticate again. This RESTful API access is limited to the specific cluster and works only for Elasticsearch API calls. You cannot make ECE platform changes from here (see the Elastic Cloud Enterprise RESTful API, if you want to work with the platform).

  1. Log into the Cloud UI.
  2. On the Deployments page, select the deployment you want.
  3. From the Elasticsearch menu, go to the Console page.
  4. Make a selection from the operation drop-down list and complete the path.

    For example, you can select Get and use the _cluster/health?pretty=true path for cluster status and other pertinent details.

  5. If needed, add the body information.


    To display the body area, select PUT, POST, or DELETE from the drop-down list.

  6. Click Submit.

The results of the API operation are displayed, along with the time it took to complete the operation.

To learn more about what kinds of Elasticsearch API calls you can make from the Cloud UI, see the Elasticsearch Reference.
