Elasticsearch HTTP source plugin

Elasticsearch HTTP is a RESTful API that provides an efficient way to interact with Elasticsearch, a popular open source search and analytics engine. It enables you to perform various operations on Elasticsearch indices and documents, such as indexing, searching, updating, and deleting data.

With Elasticsearch HTTP, you can manage your Elasticsearch data from anywhere, without the need for complex programming or scripting.

You can use the Elasticsearch HTTP source plugin to configure your Calyptia Core pipeline to collect data from your Elasticsearch HTTP instances.
