Amazon Elasticsearch Service
Developer Guide (API Version 2015-01-01)

Supported Plugins

Amazon ES domains come prepackaged with plugins that are available from the Elasticsearch community. The service automatically deploys and manages plugins for you.


Kibana is a plugin in order versions of Amazon ES and a Node.js application in newer versions. All Amazon ES domains include a preinstalled version of Kibana.

Output Plugins

Amazon ES supports two Logstash output plugins to stream data into Amazon ES: the standard Elasticsearch output plugin and the logstash-output-amazon-es plugin, which signs and exports Logstash events to Amazon ES.

For more information about Logstash, see Loading Bulk Data with the Logstash Plugin.
