Easticsearch index deleted

Brian R 1 month ago updated by Vlad R 1 month ago 1

Our Elasticsearch index has somehow deleted.  Could this have occurred via some sort of maintenance script automatically?  It does not seem as though we were attacked by the MEOW attack. Can you advise us on how to prevent this from happening in the future?

You can secure the ElasticSearch API with a password: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.8/secure-cluster.html

The password can be configured in FileRun's control panel in the ElasticSearch URL, like this: http://username:password@localhost:9200
