Transforms settings in Elasticsearchedit

You do not need to configure any settings to use transforms. It is enabled by default.

All of these settings can be added to the elasticsearch.yml configuration file. The dynamic settings can also be updated across a cluster with the cluster update settings API.

Tip

Dynamic settings take precedence over settings in the elasticsearch.yml file.

General transforms settingsedit

xpack.data_frame.enabled

Set to true (default) to enable transforms on the node.

If set to false in elasticsearch.yml, the transform APIs are disabled on the node. Therefore the node cannot start or administrate transform or receive transport (internal) communication requests related to transform APIs.

Important

If you want to use transform features in your cluster, you must have xpack.data_frame.enabled set to true on all master-eligible nodes. This is the default behavior.

xpack.data_frame.num_transform_failure_retries (Dynamic)
The number of times that a transform retries when it experiences a non-fatal error. Once the number of retries is exhausted, the transform task will be marked as failed. The default value is 10 with a valid minimum of 0 and maximum of 100. If a transform is already running, it will have to be restarted to use the changed setting.
