  • (2020-11-18) Muhammad Owais Ahmed: After upgrading to latest version of chrome, this plugin stopped working
  • (2017-10-20) Jenn: Useful but just make sure that you remember to add '=' after get vars (e.g. http://elasticsearch.host/_cluster/stats?v&pretty will not get signed correctly).
  • (2016-07-06) David Ascher: It works, which is really helpful for debugging elasticsearch services which have access policies enabled. Only quibble I have is that it's a bit of a pain to configure because the modal dialog keeps disappearing in between copy/paste operations that require tabbing away from the browser. Still, thanks!

  • (2017-11-15, v:1.0.5) Andrey Agibalov: Kibana started to complain
    About 2 weeks ago AWS Request Signer helped me a lot to access Kibana. Tried it today and Kibana complains: "The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your AWS Secret Access Key and signing method. Consult the service documentation for details." It's the same machine, same AWS account and I didn't change the credentials. ES installation is different, though. Any ideas?
  • (2016-08-18, v:1.0.2) Ryan Gross: Where does Instance Profile read from?
    Does the Instance Profile extension read from ~/.aws/credentials, or only from EC2 instance metadata?
  • (2016-08-17, v:1.0.2) John Owen: View the signature
    Is there a way to view the calculated signature?
