Amazon OpenSearch Service now supports OpenSearch Dashboards Notebooks, a new feature that help enable OpenSearch users to interactively and collaboratively develop rich reports backed by live data and queries. A notebook is a document made up of cells or paragraphs that can combine markdown, SQL and Piped Processing Language (PPL) queries, and visualizations with support for multi-timelines so that users can more easily tell a story. Notebooks can be developed, shared as an OpenSearch Dashboards link, PDF or PNG, and refreshed directly from OpenSearch Dashboards to foster data driven exploration and collaboration among OpenSearch users and their stakeholders. Common use cases for notebooks includes creating postmortem reports, designing run books, building live infrastructure reports, or even documentation.

OpenSearch Dashboards Notebooks feature is powered by OpenSearch, an Apache 2.0-licensed distribution of Elasticsearch. OpenSearch Dashboards Notebooks is supported on all Amazon Opensearch Service domains running OpenSearch 1.0 or greater.

OpenSearch Notebooks is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD. Please refer to the Amazon Web Services Region Table for more information about Amazon OpenSearch Service availability.
