Sign request

If you limit your Amazon Elasticsearch Service with an IAM role, you will need to sign every http request made to the service. The function createESConnectorClass creates a new class that can be used as a drop-in replacement for Elasticsearch default class. For example:

var elasticsearch = require('elasticsearch');
var esHttpConnector = require('elasticsearch/src/lib/connectors/http');
var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
var awsEs = require('aws-es-utils');
var let client = new elasticsearch.Client({
  host: '',
  connectionClass: awsEs.createESConnectorClass({
    AWS: AWS,
    superClass: esHttpConnector
  awsRequestSigning: true

Extra config to Elasticsearch client constructor

  • awsRequestSigning (boolean): enable AWS request signing
  • awsRegion (string | optional): AWS region. If this property is missing, the class will try to parse the region from the host name.
  • awsCredential (object | optional): optional AWS credentials. If this property is missing, the class will try to use AWS.CredentialProviderChain to retrieve the default credential. This property could be either an AWS.Credentials object or a normal object with the following properties:
    • accessKeyId (string): the AWS access key ID
    • secretAccessKey (string): the AWS secret access key
    • sessionToken (string): the optional AWS session token (the string you received from AWS STS when you obtained temporary security credentials))
  • headers (object): extra headers to send to ElasticSearch
