README

A Symfony2 plugin that acts as a proxy for Elasticsearch.

Installation

With composer, add:

{
    "require": {
        "xola/elasticsearch-proxy-bundle" : "dev-master"
    }
}

Then enable it in your kernel:

// app/AppKernel.php
public function registerBundles()
{
    $bundles = array(
        //...
        new Xola\ElasticsearchProxyBundle\XolaElasticsearchProxyBundle(),
        //...

Configuration

# app/config/config.yml
xola_elasticsearch_proxy:
    client:
        protocol: http
        host: localhost
        port: 9200
        indexes: ['logs']

The indexes parameter lets you grant access to only the specified elasticsearch indexes.

Routing

Update your routing

# app/config/routing.yml
# Xola elasticsearch proxy
XolaElasticsearchProxyBundle:
    resource: "@XolaElasticsearchProxyBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"
    prefix:   /

The default path is /elasticsearch and permits all HTTP methods (GET, PUT, POST, etc.).

Override it. Ensure index (to capture elastic search index) and slug (to capture rest of the url) remain in the route pattern.

# app/config/routing.yml
xola_elasticsearch_proxy:
     pattern:  /myproxy/{index}/{slug}
     defaults: { _controller: XolaElasticsearchProxyBundle:ElasticsearchProxy:proxy }
     requirements:
        slug: ".+"

Events

There are a couple of events fired by the bundle controller that can help you. By listening to these events you can add any custom authentication or filtering logic you require.

  1. elasticsearch_proxy.before_elasticsearch_request - This event is fired before the request is sent to Elasticsearch. The listener will receive ElasticsearchProxyEvent as an argument containing the request, index, slug, and the query object. You may modify this query object and set it back on the event with setQuery. The updated request will then be sent on to Elasticsearch.

  2. elasticsearch_proxy.after_elasticsearch_response - This event is fired after a response has been received from Elasticsearch. The listener will receive ElasticsearchProxyEvent as argument containing the request, index, slug, query, and response objects. You may modify the response and set it back into the event. The updated response is then sent back to the client.
