Elasticsearch Service now supports additional features that let you do more with our hosted offering:

    NOTE: The cluster.routing.allocation.disk.watermark.flood_stage setting is currently affected by a bug and has no effect. For more information, refer to #33119. After the bug is fixed, cluster.routing.allocation.disk.watermark.flood_stage will work automatically.

  • Cloud UI improvements. With our new UI features, you can further refine your view of the Deployments page by reformatting the grid view to a list and applying new filters. When you have finished refining your view, download your deployments as a JSON object or CSV list.
