Elasticsearch real integration tests with security enabled

In a recent post we have seen how to create real integration tests. Those tests launch a real elasticsearch cluster, then run some tests you write with JUnit or your favorite test framework then stop the cluster. But sometimes, you may want to add existing plugins in your integration test cluster. For example, you might want to use X-Pack to bring fantastic features such as: Security Alerting Monitoring Graph Reporting Let’s see how you can do that with Maven and Ant again…

Elasticsearch real integration tests

Integration tests… How do you run them? Often, you are tempted to run services you want to test from JUnit for example. In elasticsearch, you can extend ESIntegTestCase class which will start a cluster of a given number of nodes. public class BanoPluginIntegrationTest extends ESIntegTestCase { public void testPluginIsLoaded() throws Exception { // Your code here } } But to be honest, the test you are running does not guarantee that you will have the same result in production.

Creating a plugin for elasticsearch 5.0 using Maven

Elasticsearch 5.0 switched to Gradle in October 2015. You can obviously write a plugin using Gradle if you wish and you could benefit from all the goodies elasticsearch team wrote when it comes to integration tests and so on. My colleague, Alexander Reelsen aka Spinscale on Twitter, wrote a super nice template if you wish to create an Ingest plugin for 5.0. Hey! Wait! You wrote Ingest? What is that? Ingest is a new feature coming in elasticsearch 5.

Mon premier plugin elasticsearch : RSS River

Il existe dans elasticsearch la notion de river (rivière) qui comme son nom le laisse supposer permet de voir s’écouler des données depuis une source jusqu’à elasticsearch. Au fur et à mesure que les données arrivent, la rivière les transporte et les envoie à l’indexation dans elasticsearch. En standard, il existe 4 rivières : CouchDB qui permet d’indexer toutes les nouveautés d’une base CouchDB. Voir aussi cet article à ce propos. RabbitMQ qui permet de récupérer des documents dans une queue de traitement asynchrone (genre JMS) Twitter qui permet d’indexer votre flux de messages twitter par exemple Wikipedia qui permet d’indexer toutes les nouveautés de l’encyclopédie au fur et à mesure de leurs publications Premiers pas J’ai commencé par bidouiller un peu la rivière CouchDB pour y apporter quelques fonctionnalités dont mes collègues avaient besoin :
