After you perform change operations on an Elasticsearch cluster, you can view change records that are generated for the cluster during a specific time range on the Change Records page of the cluster in the Elasticsearch console. Change operations include changing the configurations of the cluster, restarting the cluster, or scaling in or out the cluster. This topic describes how to view the change records generated for an Elasticsearch cluster and describes the parameters related to change records.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Elasticsearch console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters.
  3. Navigate to the desired cluster.
    1. In the top navigation bar, select the resource group to which the cluster belongs and the region where the cluster resides.
    2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Elasticsearch Clusters. On the Elasticsearch Clusters page, find the cluster and click its ID.
  4. In the left-side navigation pane of the page that appears, click Change Records. On the Change Records page, you can specify a time range and view the change records generated for the cluster during the time range.
    View change records
    Note By default, the system displays change records generated for an Elasticsearch cluster during the last 24 hours. You can also view change records generated for the cluster during the last 7 days, the last 30 days, or a custom time range. You cannot view the change records that are generated before the last 30 days.
    Parameter Description
    Change Start Time The time when the change operation started.
    Change Type The type of the change operation for the cluster, such as cluster creation, cluster restart, and cluster configuration change.
