Output to Elasticsearch

Prerequisites

Ensure that you have an Elasticsearch connection with the correct permissions to write to your target bucket.

Create a job writing into Elasticsearch

After you have fulfilled the prerequisites, you can create an INSERT job as follows:

CREATE SYNC JOB insert_into_elasticsearch_index
   RUN_INTERVAL = 1 MINUTE
   START_FROM = BEGINNING
   COMMENT = 'insert data into Elasticsearch index'
AS INSERT INTO ELASTICSEARCH your_elasticsearch_connection PREFIX = 'orders'
      SELECT customer_id,
             COUNT(DISTINCT order_id) AS num_orders,
             SUM(net_total) AS total_spent,
             MIN(order_date) AS first_purchase,
             MAX(order_date) AS last_purchase
      FROM default_glue_catalog.your_database.staging_table
      WHERE time_filter()
      GROUP BY customer_id;

This example only demonstrates an example of all job options available when writing to Elasticsearch. Depending on your use case, you may want to configure different options.

Alter a job writing to Elasticsearch

Certain job options are considered mutable, meaning that in some cases, you can run a SQL command to alter an existing transformation job rather than having to create a new one.

For example, take the job we created as an example earlier:

CREATE SYNC JOB insert_into_elasticsearch_index
   RUN_INTERVAL = 1 MINUTE
   START_FROM = BEGINNING
   COMMENT = 'insert data into Elasticsearch index'
AS INSERT INTO ELASTICSEARCH your_elasticsearch_connection PREFIX = 'orders'
      SELECT customer_id,
             COUNT(DISTINCT order_id) AS num_orders,
             SUM(net_total) AS total_spent,
             MIN(order_date) AS first_purchase,
             MAX(order_date) AS last_purchase
      FROM default_glue_catalog.your_database.staging_table
      WHERE time_filter()
      GROUP BY customer_id;

If you wanted to keep the job as is but just change the cluster that is running the job, you can run the following command:

ALTER JOB insert_into_elasticsearch_index
    SET COMPUTE_CLUSTER = high_memory_cluster;

Drop a job writing to Elasticsearch

If you no longer need a certain job, you can easily drop it with the following SQL command:

DROP JOB insert_into_elasticsearch_index;
