13.2. Elasticsearch external mode


You are looking at documentation for an older release. Not what you want? See the current release documentation.

With the external mode, Elasticsearch nodes are not embedded in eXo Platform server, eXo Platform connects to the external Elasticsearch node or cluster.

./addon uninstall exo-es-embedded

or simply disable it in exo.properties by setting to false the property exo.es.embedded.enabled:


The following plugins must be installed on each eXo Platform node:


Even if theoretically this addon should be compatible with any Elasticsearch version from 2.0, it has only been tested with the version 2.3. So we highly recommend to use Elasticsearch 2.3.x versions.

As for embedded mode, some parameters should be configured for the external mode through exo.properties file:

You can find more details about the above parameters, default values and description in Properties reference table.
