Connect to Elasticsearch Data in DBeaver

Manage Elasticsearch data with visual tools in DBeaver like the query browser.

The CData JDBC Driver for Elasticsearch implements JDBC standards that enable third-party tools to interoperate, from wizards in IDEs to business intelligence tools. This article shows how to connect to Elasticsearch data with wizards in DBeaver and browse data in the DBeaver GUI.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Elasticsearch Data

Follow the steps below to load the driver JAR in DBeaver.

  1. Open the DBeaver application and, in the Databases menu, select the Driver Manager option. Click New to open the Create New Driver form.
  2. In the Driver Name box, enter a user-friendly name for the driver.
  3. To add the .jar, click Add File.
  4. In the create new driver dialog that appears, select the cdata.jdbc.elasticsearch.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Click the Find Class button and select the ElasticsearchDriver class from the results. This will automatically fill the Class Name field at the top of the form. The class name for the driver is cdata.jdbc.elasticsearch.ElasticsearchDriver.
  6. Add jdbc:elasticsearch: in the URL Template field.

Create a Connection to Elasticsearch Data

Follow the steps below to add credentials and other required connection properties.

  1. In the Databases menu, click New Connection.
  2. In the Create new connection wizard that results, select the driver.
  3. On the next page of the wizard, click the driver properties tab.
  4. Enter values for authentication credentials and other properties required to connect to Elasticsearch.

    Set the Server and Port connection properties to connect. To authenticate, set the User and Password properties, PKI (public key infrastructure) properties, or both. To use PKI, set the SSLClientCert, SSLClientCertType, SSLClientCertSubject, and SSLClientCertPassword properties.

    The data provider uses X-Pack Security for TLS/SSL and authentication. To connect over TLS/SSL, prefix the Server value with 'https://'. Note: TLS/SSL and client authentication must be enabled on X-Pack to use PKI.

    Once the data provider is connected, X-Pack will then perform user authentication and grant role permissions based on the realms you have configured.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:elasticsearch:Server=127.0.0.1;Port=9200;User=admin;Password=123456;

Query Elasticsearch Data

You can now query information from the tables exposed by the connection: Right-click a Table and then click Edit Table. The data is available on the Data tab.
