Briefly, this error occurs when a connection is made to Elasticsearch and the IP address of the origin is allowed by the IP filter rules set in the transport profile. This is not an error but an informational message indicating that the connection has been successfully granted. If you don’t want to see these messages, you can adjust the logging level in Elasticsearch. Alternatively, if you want to restrict certain IP addresses, you can modify the IP filter rules in the transport profile.

            logger.info("{}[ip_filter] [connection_granted]\torigin_address=[{}]; transport_profile=[{}]; rule=[{}]{}";
                    localNodeInfo.prefix; NetworkAddress.format(inetAddress); profile; rule; opaqueId());
