Staying connected, staying safe.

When you use the managed Elasticsearch service on AWS, you usually choose an encrypted connection (via KMS-managed keys), which means you can’t use just any tool to connect to your Elasticsearch cluster. In fact, in order to manually execute commands the easiest option is to use the built-in Kibana and its dev tools.

However, connecting to Kibana is also not trivial due to typical security precautions. Elasticsearch can be run outside or inside a VPC. If you run it outside a VPC, you have to modify its access policy to allow connections from a set of IPs (e.g. your office network).
