    Lambda >> ElasticSearch >> Kibana

    Stability: Experimental

    This AWS Solutions Construct implements the AWS Lambda function and Amazon ElasticSearch Service with the least privileged permissions.


    Architecture Diagram

    Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition in Typescript:

    import { LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana } from 'lambda-elasticsearch-kibana';
    import { Aws } from "@aws-cdk/core";
    const lambdaProps: lambda.FunctionProps = {
        code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(`${__dirname}/lambda`),
        runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_14_X,
        handler: 'index.handler'
    new LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana(this, 'test-lambda-elasticsearch-kibana', {
        lambdaFunctionProps: lambdaProps,
        domainName: 'test-domain',
        // TODO: Ensure the Cognito domain name is globally unique
        cognitoDomainName: 'globallyuniquedomain' + Aws.ACCOUNT_ID;


    new LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana(scope: Construct, id: string, props: LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibanaProps);


    Pattern Construct Props

    Name Type Description
    existingLambdaObj? lambda.Function Existing instance of Lambda Function object, providing both this and lambdaFunctionProps will cause an error.
    lambdaFunctionProps? lambda.FunctionProps User provided props to override the default props for the Lambda function.
    esDomainProps? elasticsearch.CfnDomainProps Optional user provided props to override the default props for the ElasticSearch Service
    domainName string Domain name for the Cognito and the ElasticSearch Service
    cognitoDomainName? string Optional Cognito Domain Name, if provided it will be used for Cognito Domain, and domainName will be used for the ElasticSearch Domain
    createCloudWatchAlarms boolean Whether to create recommended CloudWatch alarms
    domainEndpointEnvironmentVariableName? string Optional Name for the ElasticSearch domain endpoint environment variable set for the Lambda function.

    Pattern Properties

    Name Type Description
    lambdaFunction lambda.Function Returns an instance of lambda.Function created by the construct
    userPool cognito.UserPool Returns an instance of cognito.UserPool created by the construct
    userPoolClient cognito.UserPoolClient Returns an instance of cognito.UserPoolClient created by the construct
    identityPool cognito.CfnIdentityPool Returns an instance of cognito.CfnIdentityPool created by the construct
    elasticsearchDomain elasticsearch.CfnDomain Returns an instance of elasticsearch.CfnDomain created by the construct
    elasticsearchDomain iam.Role Returns an instance of iam.Role created by the construct for elasticsearch.CfnDomain
    cloudwatchAlarms? cloudwatch.Alarm[] Returns a list of cloudwatch.Alarm created by the construct

    Lambda Function

    This pattern requires a lambda function that can post data into the ElasticSearch. A sample function is provided here.

    Default settings

    Out of the box implementation of the Construct without any override will set the following defaults:

    AWS Lambda Function

    • Configure limited privilege access IAM role for Lambda function
    • Enable reusing connections with Keep-Alive for NodeJs Lambda function
    • Enable X-Ray Tracing
    • Set Environment Variables
      • (default) DOMAIN_ENDPOINT
      • AWS_NODEJS_CONNECTION_REUSE_ENABLED (for Node 12.x and higher functions)

    Amazon Cognito

    • Set password policy for User Pools
    • Enforce the advanced security mode for User Pools

    Amazon ElasticSearch Service

    • Deploy best practices CloudWatch Alarms for the ElasticSearch Domain
    • Secure the Kibana dashboard access with Cognito User Pools
    • Enable server-side encryption for ElasticSearch Domain using AWS managed KMS Key
    • Enable node-to-node encryption for ElasticSearch Domain
    • Configure the cluster for the Amazon ES domain
