Elasticsearch Curator Helm Chart

This directory contains a Kubernetes chart to deploy the Elasticsearch Curator.


This chart is deprecated and no longer supported.

Prerequisites Details

  • Elasticsearch

  • The elasticsearch-curator cron job requires K8s CronJob support: > You need a working Kubernetes cluster at version >= 1.8 (for CronJob). For previous versions of cluster (< 1.8) you need to explicitly enable batch/v2alpha1 API by passing --runtime-config=batch/v2alpha1=true to the API server (see Turn on or off an API version for your cluster for more).

Chart Details

This chart will do the following:

  • Create a CronJob which runs the Curator

Installing the Chart

To install the chart, use the following:

$ helm install stable/elasticsearch-curator

Upgrading an existing Release to a new major version

A major chart version change (like v1.2.3 -> v2.0.0) indicates that there is an incompatible breaking change needing manual actions.

To 2.0.0

v2.0.0 uses docker image from elasticsearch-curator author, which differs in its way to install curator.

If you have a hardcoded command value, please update it to follow the new curator executable path: /curator/curator (which is not in PATH).


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the docker-registry chart and their default values.
