The Elasticsearch sink connector helps you integrate Apache Kafka® and Elasticsearch with minimum effort. You can take data you’ve stored in Kafka and stream it into Elasticsearch to then be used for log analysis, security analytics, or full-text search. Alternatively, you can perform real-time analytics on this data or use it with other applications like Kibana.
