What Is Open Distro For Elasticsearch (ODFE)?

As of version 7.11 the Elastic Stack as distributed by Elastic is no longer completely open source. As the Logit.io platform is built on the open source versions of Elasticsearch and Kibana we are integrating our platform with the AWS offering of Open Distro to bring the best of these features to all of our users.

Open Distro delivers enterprise-grade access controls for Kibana so that users can tighten access to their dashboards and data visualisations and can more readily configure fine-grained security permissions.

If you are storing sensitive data within Elasticsearch and Kibana it is essential to set security configurations so that internal staff have appropriate access to the data they require and are not privy to data from other departments or potentially sensitive user data.

By using Logit.io’s offering of Open Distro for Elasticsearch paired alongside our built in Role Based Access Controls (RBAC) you can benefit from being able to configure the necessary settings required to secure access to your data and dashboards.

How Does The Logit.io Platform Harness ODFE?

Logit.io’s Elasticsearch and Kibana offering allows users to create their stack and send data within minutes and frees our users from having to consider hosting and maintaining the Elastic Stack on premise.

Logit.io's managed solution for the Elastic Stack gives you access to the best open-source attributes of Elasticsearch and Kibana with in-place upgrades, expert support engineers and all of the essential alerting and log monitoring features required for securing your operations and maintaining compliance.

All Logit.io users will be able to access the Open Distro version of the Elastic Stack and current users of legacy versions of ELK will have the option to upgrade to the newest version of Elasticsearch and Kibana for free. If you want to find out how to do this feel free to reach out to a member of the support team via live chat.

Enhanced Security Features For The Elastic Stack

Granular, role-based access controls place the responsibility in your hands to control the actions a staff member or external contributor can perform against your Elasticsearch clusters.

Index level permissions are used to allow or disallow actions that would affect indices matching the configured index patterns, such as setting read or write permissions to various Stacks under your administration.

Document level permissions when set restrict users from being able to view documents that they are unauthorised to view, edit or share. There are many use cases where this would be required, especially in compliance with HIPPA and various other regulations directly affected by data hygiene.

Field level permissions restrict users from being able to access and modify specific fields within a document or dashboard. This means that dashboards can not be edited in a way that isn’t permitted by your administrator.

Our managed service supporting Open Distro for Elasticsearch fully enables users to set Role Based Access Controls (also known as RBAC) to restrict internal users and unauthorised staff accessing data, reports and dashboards that they haven’t been permitted to view. This includes pre-defined roles for Kibana Read Only and Dashboard Read Only, in addition to custom roles that you can manage yourself.

security features from Open Distro For Elasticsearch
SQL Support

SQL and PPL Query Workbench

Our managed service allows you to reap all of the benefits of Elasticsearch's full-text search and scoring capabilities. Querying your data has been made even easier with the addition of Open Distro for Elasticsearch's SQL and PPL (Piped Processing Language) query workbench.

If you are already familiar with making Elasticsearch queries using SQL then the SQL Workbench will be a welcome addition to your Elastic Stack workflow. Logit.io users are now able to query data from Elasticsearch much easier (in comparison to using standard DSL), test their findings before saving and convert SQL into its REST equivalent where required.

In the event that you are more comfortable with seeing your query as a tabbed format or wish to export this as a CSV, JDBC or JSON file this is also possible thanks to this convenient interface.

Companies Feel The Difference When They Use Logit.io

Uizard testimonial

"One thing is certain when operating in the startup space, a strict budget. Before we make any purchase decision to use a SaaS platform, we need to validate the benefits of the platform and more importantly the team behind the platform.

Logit.io's customer support team stood out. Right from the beginning, the Logit.io team was there to answer questions and walk us through the process."

Ioannis Sintos, Co-Founder & CIO - Uizard

Scheduled Reports

Open Distro for Elasticsearch and Kibana also includes scheduled reporting which allows users to generate PDF, PNG and CSV reports which can be configured to be generated on a recurring basis.

If you are to select cron based scheduling you can have an even higher flexibility on when reports are sent.

Optional features of reporting include the ability to select custom headers and footers for dashboard and data visualisation reports.

Kibana Multi-Tenancy

Thanks to Logit.io’s offering of the latest version of managed Elasticsearch built upon Open Distro users can now take advantage of Kibana Multi-Tenancy. Want to find out more about Kibana multi-tenancy? Then why not see if you are are eligible for a Kibana demo?

This allows our platform users to create named containers for storing their index patterns, dashboards, reports and visualisations. These containers are called tenants and can be set to only be accessible by certain roles with the correct read/write properties.

Private tenancies can be set for exploratory activities and drafts that you only wish to be viewable by yourself.

Tenants can be set so that when a user logs in under your specified role they are set to read, write or edit on the dashboards they are allowed to view. A limited view can secure access to sensitive data that might not be suitable for company-wide visibility, for example your sales teams are highly unlikely to be required to be the first to know about a security breach or traffic spikes occurring against a server.
