ES-Loader support for AWS Open search


I couldn’t find any documentation about es-loader support of AWS’s Open Search.

If I’d like to use the newest (2.0.4) es-loader which version of the AWS Managed elasticsearch versions should I use?


Hi Avi,

You should be able to use any of the Elasticsearch 7.x versions (not sure if the loader has been tested on 8). Given the 7.x base of OpenSearch I would say that OpenSearch 1.0 or 1.1 should work without any issues as the APIs used by the loader are compatible.


Will also add on that the ES Loader has full support for RBAC within OpenSearch (at least in versions I have tested). So you can use fine-grained-access-control and authorize an IAM role to load data to the cluster.

There is some documentation in our quick-start ES Loader Terraform module:
