What’s newedit

  • New top level command: ecctl comment. Includes commands to create, delete, list, show and update comments for any of the Elastic Cloud resources: elasticsearch, kibana, apm, appsearch, enterprise_search, allocator, constructor, runner, proxy.
  • New deployment command: ecctl deployment traffic-filter. Includes commands to create, delete, list and show traffic filter rules and the ecctl deployment traffic-filter association sub-command includes two more sub-commands to create and delete associations between traffic rules and deployments.
  • New deployment command: ecctl deployment extension. Includes commands to create, delete list and show custom deployment extensions such as Elasticsearch bundles or plugins.
  • Added support for data tiers in all ecctl deployment commands.

Bug fixesedit

  • Improved deployment tracking. The deployment tracking has been improved. It now fails only when the plan completes with a failure, instead of returning errors from other steps of the plan.

Breaking changesedit

  • Deployment create drops support flag-based actions. Instance definition flags for the ecctl deployment create command have been removed. Using a predefined deployment definition JSON file is still optional with the --file flag, and the --deployment-template flag can be used to create a deployment from a template using the template configuration. See ecctl deployment create --help for a full list of examples.
