This page describes how to configure Elasticsearch credentials for use by Census as a source and why those permissions are needed.

Census lets you select an Elasticsearch instance to treat as a source for your syncs.

In order to sync data from Elasticsearch, Census needs your deployment url, port, username, and password. This walks you through the step by step of setting this up.

Create an Elasticsearch connection

  • Enter into your Elastic search instance. Click on the deployment name such that it takes you to a url that looks like https://cloud.elastic.co/deployments/3last1ch3x4d3c1m4lstr1ng click on the following button to copy your Elasticsearch endpoint string to your clipboard

  • Copy and paste this in the "Server Hostname" field. Then take off the :1234 part at the end to paste those four digits in the "Server Port" field. The user and password are the same from logging into your elastic.co account. Click Save Connection.

You're all set! Click "test connection" and you can query this from the models tab and use it as a source for syncing data to our library of destinations.

If you have any questions during setup, or have a use case that is not covered, please write us in-app or send us an email via support@getcensus.com


Advanced Network Configuration

Census can successfully connect to Elasticsearch instances that are using advanced networking controls including region constraints and IP address allow lists. For more information, see our Network Access Controls documentation.
