Spin up the Elastic Stackedit

To use Elastic Observability, you need Elasticsearch for storing and searching your data, and Kibana for visualizing and managing it.

You can use our hosted Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud (recommended), or self-manage the Elastic Stack on your own hardware.

  1. Get a free trial.
  2. Log into Elastic Cloud.
  3. Click Create deployment.
  4. Give your deployment a name.
  5. Click Create deployment.
  6. Save your deployment credentials.

You can find your Cloud ID and APM endpoint in your deployments list at cloud.elastic.co. To reset the provided password, go to the Security page for your deployment.

Now that you have provisioned your first deployment of your Elasticsearch cluster, you’re ready to ingest your logs, metrics, uptime data, and APM data.
