  1. Hi there,

    I’m interested in using these bootstrap scripts for AWS EMR 4.x and 5.0, but it appears they only support AMI version 3.x. Do you know if it’s possible to run these scripts on later versions of EMR, or how to get Elasticsearch and Kibana installed manually?


    • Hi,
      Yes, I have bootstrap actions for EMR 4.X and 5.x
      Please use these:
      Both should work on 4.x and 5.x
      Let me know if you experience any issues.
