Provisioning Elasticsearch and Kibana with Terraform

Fair warning up front: this is not a Terraform, AWS, or Elasticsearch tutorial. You’ll need to know a bit or read the docs to apply the examples. When I wanted to add the AWS version of ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) which is Elasticsearch, Cloudwatch and Kibana, I hit a road block that Terraform did not support provisioning the actual streaming of logs from Cloudwatch to Elasticsearch naively. Googling lead me approximately nowhere, and I had to devise a solution from scratch.
