Elasticsearch : add support for aliases

@danielesser : it would be great if you could add support for aliases rather than just indexes.

We rely on aliases for authorization purposes. Because of this, we can’t use your wonderful Elasticsearch nodes.

Maybe it would be enough to add a “get _cat/aliases/” and include those results in the drop down lists of indexes that are currently there. Or if you could allow free text input, we could “force” the use of an alias.

Thanks @kixxalot for the feedback. That actually might make it into the next release. I’ll have a look and give you a heads-up.

Best regards,


That would be awesome, @danielesser ! Thanks in advance.

Hi @kixxalot,

Support for aliases has been added to the Elasticsearch Nodes with version 1.2.0. You can find the changelog here. Let me know if you experience any issues. Thanks for your feedback! :slight_smile:

Best regards,
