Creating Data Extract from Elasticsearch 6.x

The Elasticsearch 6.x connector allows you to connect and access data from an Elasticsearch cluster using Transport Client.


·         The Elasticsearch 6.x connector supports Elasticsearch 6.x versions.

·         Elasticsearch 6.x and 7.x connectors will not work in a single Panopticon Real Time instance due to conflicting Elasticsearch API dependencies.
