Workplace Search connectorsedit

Workplace Search connectors are connectors available directly within your Elastic deployment, through the Workplace Search product. No additional infrastructure is required. Workplace Search connector packages are open-code connector implementations you can deploy to your own infrastructure.

Workplace Search connectors (and connector packages) sync data sources to Workplace Search content sources. Create these content sources using the Workplace Search product within Kibana.

The following Workplace Search connectors are available:

Availability and prerequisitesedit

Workplace Search connectors were introduced in Elastic version 7.5.0.

Your Elastic deployment must include the following Elastic services:

  • Elasticsearch
  • Kibana
  • Enterprise Search with at least 4GB RAM per zone

(A new Elastic Cloud deployment includes these services by default, however, you must increase the RAM for the Enterprise Search service. See Infrastructure requirements.)

While most Workplace Search connectors are generally available, some connectors may be available in beta or technical preview. Refer to the documentation for each connector, linked above.


Because Workplace Search tools are abstractions, they are designed to work well with other Workplace Search tools. Traditionally, Workplace Search connectors sync data to Workplace Search content sources, and you search those content sources using a search UI specific to Workplace Search.

However, you can now use additional Elastic tools with your Workplace Search documents. For example, you can search Workplace Search content sources using Elastic Search UI and its Workplace Search connector.

You can also access the Elasticsearch index underlying any Workplace Search content source. Using this technique, you can search and manage your Workplace Search documents using tools designed for Elasticsearch indices in addition to the tools designed for Workplace Search content sources.
