How to create an instance

To create a service instance run the following command:

cf create-service elasticsearch24 1x my-elastic-service

Additional notes

Each instance is one node; there is not currently a way to make multi-node instances.

ElasticSearch 2.4 allows for dots in field names. This is a feature that existed pre-ElasticSearch 2.0 but was disabled in versions 2.0 to 2.3. Learn more about that here.

Rotating credentials

You can rotate credentials by creating a new instance and deleting the existing instance. If this is not an option, email support to request rotating the credentials manually.
