Project description

# esFrontLine

Limit restful requests to backend ElasticSearch cluster: Queries for the public,

## Requirements

* Python 2.7 or 3.6.2+
* An ElasticSearch cluster to forward queries to

## Install

I will assume you have Python installed (if not, here are [Windows7 instructions](

pip install esFrontLine

## Setup

You must write your own setting.json file with the following properties set:

* **elasticsearch** - (Array of) ElasticSearch nodes
* **** - URL of the ElasticSearch node that will accept query requests
* **elasticsearch.port** - port for ES (default = 9200)
* **flask** - parameters (default port = 5000)
* **whitelist** - list of indexes that are allowed
* **users** - list of allowed HAWK users, with their linked resources
* **users.resources** - list of indexes the user is allowed
* **users.hawk** - object of [Hawk credentials](
* **** - any human readable name to identify the user or application
* **users.hawk.key** - the secret value held by both endpoints and not shared with anyone
* **users.hawk.algorithm**: always "sha256" for now
* **debug** - for debugging

Here is an example of my ```settings.json``` file

"users": [
"hawk": {
"id": "",
"key": "secret",
"algorithm": "sha256"
"resources": [
"whitelist":["bugs", "org_chart", "bug_summary", "reviews"],
"filename": "./tests/results/logs/app.log",
"maxBytes": 10000000,
"backupCount": 200,
"encoding": "utf8"
