Enable username and password for the Elasticsearch output type


    • Logging (Core) - Sprint 200, Logging (Core) - Sprint 201, Logging (Core) - Sprint 204, Logging (Core) - Sprint 205


      As a user of Cluster Log Forwarding,
      I want to rely upon username and password to authenticate against an external Elasticsearch instance.

      Acceptance Criteria

      • Username and passwords are not visible in the configuration as plain text but configured as a Secret
      • Integration test that utilizes username and password for the Elasticsearch output
      • Username and password is not supported for OpenShift Logging managed Elasticsearch store
      • Must work with either HTTP or HTTPs.


      • Modify verification checks to require username and password as a set

      Documentation Consideration

      • Extend the forwarding to Elasticsearch section with information on how to setup a Secret that contains username and password, and if necessary everything for setting up certificates if HTTPS is being used.
