Next Steps

Now that you have provisioned your first cluster and indexed some documents in Elasticsearch, try out some additional steps:

  • Enable additional features, such as monitoring in versions before 5.0, Kibana and Shield for clusters that didn’t automatically enable them, and more.
  • Configure Beats and Logstash to send data to Elastic Cloud quickly with your Cloud ID.
  • Change your cluster by upgrading to a newer Elasticsearch version or adding some plugins, for example.
  • Like what Elastic Cloud can do for you? Add a credit card to continue using the service past your trial expiration date, to add more clusters, or to increase the processing capacity of your existing cluster.

    To upload scripts, we ask that you either add a credit card or open a support ticket for help. This is simply because we don’t want to run your code without knowing who you are. To find out more about why we do this, see this article.
