ElasticSearch Connector

Version 4



Elasticsearch is the distributed search and analytics engine at the heart of the Elastic Stack. With this connector visualize your ElasticSearch data in Domo for additional insights. Use Domo's Elasticsearch connector to return search hits that match the query defined in the request. Get real-time dashboards of your data, available from any device. To learn more about the Elasticsearch API, visit their page (

You connect to your Elasticsearch account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Elasticsearch connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.


To connect to your Elasticsearch account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • Your Elasticsearch host name

  • The username and password associated with your Elasticsearch account

Connecting to Your Elasticsearch Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Elasticsearch Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Elasticsearch account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  



Host Enter your Elasticsearch hostname.
Username Enter the username associated with your Elasticsearch account.
Password Enter the password associated with your Elasticsearch account.

Once you have entered valid Elasticsearch credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Elasticsearch DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.




Select the Elasticsearch report you want to run. The following reports are available:

Aggregations Returns aggregations that match the query defined in the request.
Search Returns search hits that match the query defined in the request.
Search With Pagination Returns search hits that match the query defined in the request. Use this report to retrive more than 10000 result.

Enter the field name to sort the data on. By default '_id' will be used if not provided. Provide a custom field in the 'Query' text box, if it is a custom field name.

Note: If 'QUERY' doesn't contain the sort array support, the sort array will get added with the FIELD value.

Query Query in the Lucene query string syntax.
Index Comma-separated list or wildcard expression of index names used to limit the request.
Use Advanced Sublist To Flatten options Select 'Yes' if you want to use the advanced Sublist To Flatten option. If you select 'Yes,' the primitive arrays will be expanded in a single cell.
Sublists To Flatten Enter the comma separated lists that you would like to flatten in your data.
Delimiter For Primitive Arrays Select the delimiting character to separate the primitive array values in a cell
