To help with Elasticsearch development, Archivematica comes with a plugin for Elasticsearch, called Elasticsearch Head, that provides a web application for browsing and administering Elasticsearch data. It can be accessed at http://your.host.name:9200/_plugin/head/.

Elasticsearch Head will allow you to delete an index, if need be.

Access Control[edit]

The only way to limit access to ElasticSearch, currently, is using your server's firewall configuration. You'll likely want to configure your server's firewall to limit access to ElasticSearch's TCP/IP port (9200). It is recommended to only allow access by (the server itself) and the IPs of any other servers or workstations that should be able to access it.
