One of the most annoying parts of setting up Elastic Search on AWS is the way access is configured for that service. From what i've gathered you have one of two options to protect it:
- Make sure it's running internally only (i.e. not internet facing and only available to the other services on the same VPC)
- Completely open to the internet and eventually relying (if you can make it work) on the Cognito authentication service
Typically you would, as we did, go for the path of least resistance ...
