Create a Security project

Get started with serverless Elastic Security in a few steps.

A serverless project allows you to run Elastic Security in an autoscaled and fully-managed environment, where you don't have to manage the underlying Elasticsearch cluster and Kibana instances.

Create project

Use your Elastic Cloud account to create a fully-managed Elastic Security project:

  1. Navigate to

  2. Log in to your Elastic Cloud account and select Create project from the Serverless projects panel.

  3. Select Next from the Security panel.

  4. Edit your project settings. (Click Edit settings to access all settings.)

    • Name: A unique name for your project.

    • Cloud provider: The cloud platform where you’ll deploy your project. We currently support Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    • Region: The cloud platform’s region where your project will live. The region should be as close as possible to the location of your data.

    You can also check the pricing details to see how you consume serverless Elastic Security.

  5. Select Create project. It takes a few minutes before your project gets created.

  6. Once the project is ready, select Continue to open the Get started page. (You might need to log into Elastic Cloud again.)

    From here, you can learn more about Elastic Security features and start setting up your workspace.
