Snowplow Elasticsearch Loader


The Snowplow Elasticsearch Loader consumes Snowplow enriched events or failed events from an Amazon Kinesis stream or NSQ topic, transforms them to JSON, and writes them to Elasticsearch. Events which cannot be transformed or which are rejected by Elasticsearch are written to a separate Kinesis stream.


Assuming you already have SBT 1.1.5 installed:

$ git clone git://
$ sbt compile


The Snowplow Elasticsearch Loader has the following command-line interface:

snowplow-elasticsearch-loader 0.10.2

Usage: snowplow-elasticsearch-loader [options]

  --config <filename>


Create your own config file:

$ cp examples/config.hocon.sample my.conf

Update the configuration to fit your needs like modifying the AWS credentials:

aws {
  access-key: "default"
  secret-key: "default"

Next, start the loader, making sure to specify your new config file:

$ java -jar snowplow-elasticsearch-loader-http-0.10.2.jar --config my.conf
