Question

Pega 8.2.1 deployment in openshift - is standalone elasticsearch supported ?

Hi,

We are deploying pega 8.2.1 on openshift platform. We are using pega provided docker engine along with other config (web, batch and stream YAML files).

Following this guide for openshift.

Just wanted to know whether the standalone instance of elastic search is supported or do we need to stick with pega provided ES image.?

Thanks

For your version of pega search, you need to use pega provided ES image as it includes a couple of Pega custom plugins. The completely independent of ES image (which is version 6.x versus 5.x for Pega search docker image), is for ELK stack, they are not mutually exclusive. We are in the process to completely move pega search out of Pega engine in the future releases. Hope this clarifies.

Thanks for your response.

Is there any ETA by when we can expect the release as we intend to use central solution of elastic search or any procedures to leverage the pega custom plugins within the standalone instance ?
