Elastic SIEM

Elastic is a solution that can provide search and observability options for monitoring your Bitwarden organization. Elastic Agent provides the capability to monitor collection, event, group, and policy information with the Elastic Bitwarden integration.


Create a Elastic account

To begin, start by creating an Elastic account. This step is required in order to set up a dashboard to monitor data with Elastic's cloud hosted service (recommended), or on-premise service.

Add Bitwarden integration

Monitoring data will require the use of Elastic Search as well as Kibana to visualize data.

  1. On the Elastic home screen, scroll down and locate Add Integrations.
