You can obtain the basic information, such as internal or public endpoint, port number, version, and type, of an Elasticsearch cluster from the Basic Information page of the cluster. This topic describes the content displayed on this page.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where your cluster resides.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters. On the page that appears, find the target cluster and click its ID in the Cluster ID/Name column.
  4. On the Basic Information page, view the basic information and statistics of the cluster.
    Basic Information page
    Parameter Description
    Cluster ID The unique ID of the cluster.
    Name The name of the cluster. By default, the name of a cluster is the same as its ID. Cluster names are configurable. You can search for clusters by name.
    Version The version of the cluster. Valid values: 5.5.3, 5.6.0, 6.3.2, 6.7.0, 6.8.0, and 7.4.0.
    Notice If you want to upgrade the version of the cluster, you can use the version upgrade feature of Elasticsearch. You can upgrade only Elasticsearch clusters from V6.3.2 to V6.7.0. For more information, see Upgrade the version of a cluster.
    Cluster Type The type of the cluster. Valid values: Standard and Advanced.
    Region The region where the cluster resides.
    Zone The zone where the cluster resides.
    VPC The Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) where the cluster resides.
    VSwitch The VSwitch to which the cluster belongs.
    Internal Network Address In a VPC, you can use an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance to connect to the internal endpoint of an Elasticsearch cluster.
    Notice For security and stability purposes, we recommend that you do not access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet. If you require high security and stability, we recommend that you purchase an ECS instance that resides in the same VPC as your Elasticsearch cluster. You can then use the ECS instance to connect to the internal endpoint of the Elasticsearch cluster.
    Internal Network Port The port used to connect to the cluster over an internal network. Elasticsearch supports the following ports:
    • Port 9200 for HTTP and HTTPS.
    • Port 9300 for TCP. Only Elasticsearch V5.X clusters support this port.
      Note You cannot use Transport Client to access Elasticsearch clusters of V6.X or later over port 9300. If you want to use port 9300, purchase a V5.X cluster. For more information about how to access a cluster, see Access an Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch instance.
    Public Network Access The public endpoint of the cluster. You can use this endpoint to access the cluster over the Internet. You must turn on the Public Network Access switch on the Security page. For more information, see Configure a whitelist to access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet or a VPC.
    Notice If you use the public endpoint to access the cluster, you must configure a public network whitelist. By default, Elasticsearch denies requests from all IP addresses. For more information about how to configure the whitelist, see Configure a whitelist to access an Elasticsearch cluster over the Internet or a VPC.
    Public Network Port The port used to connect to the cluster over the Internet. This parameter is displayed only after you turn on the Public Network Access switch. Elasticsearch supports the following ports:
    • Port 9200 for HTTP and HTTPS.
    • Port 9300 for TCP. Only Elasticsearch V5.X clusters support this port.
      Note You cannot use Transport Client to access Elasticsearch clusters of V6.X or later over port 9300. If you want to use port 9300, purchase a V5.X cluster. For more information about how to access a cluster, see Access an Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch instance.
    Protocol The protocol used by the cluster. Default value: HTTP. Valid values: HTTP and HTTPS.
    Tag The tag bound to the cluster. You can use tags to classify and manage Elasticsearch clusters. For more information, see Manage cluster tags.
    Status The state of the cluster. An Elasticsearch cluster has the following states: Active (green), Initializing (yellow), Unhealthy (red), Paused (red), and Expired (gray).
    Billing Method The billing method of the cluster. Valid values: Pay-As-You-Go and Subscription.
    Created At The time when the cluster was created.
    Maintenance Window The maintenance window for the cluster. The default value of this parameter is 02:00 - 06:00. You can set Maintenance Window based on your business needs. For more information, see Set a maintenance window.
    Renew

    This parameter is displayed only when Billing Method is Subscription.

    You can click Renew on the right side of Basic Information to renew the cluster. The minimum renewal period of a cluster is one month. For more information, see Manually renew an Elasticsearch cluster.

    Switch to Subscription

    This parameter is displayed only when Billing Method is Pay-As-You-Go.

    You can click Switch to Subscription in the lower-right corner of the Basic Information section to change the billing method. The Switch to Subscription feature allows you to change the billing method of an Elasticsearch cluster from Pay-As-You-Go to Subscription. However, no discount is offered when you change the billing method. For more information, see Switch the billing method from pay-as-you-go to subscription.
