Update connector service type APIedit

This functionality is in technical preview and may be changed or removed in a future release. Elastic will work to fix any issues, but features in technical preview are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

Updates the service_type of a connector.


PUT _connector/<connector_id>/_service_type


  • To sync data using connectors, it’s essential to have the Elastic connectors service running.
  • The connector_id parameter should reference an existing connector.
  • The service_type must be a valid type as defined by the Connector framework.

    • When you change a configured connector’s service_type, you’ll also need to reset its configuration to ensure compatibility.
