Resolution: Won't Fix
Affects Version/s: 7.1.0 CE GA1, Master
Fix Version/s: None
According to our Compatibility Matrix, Liferay 7.1 only supports Elasticsearch 6.1. This is different enough from ES 6 that it may cause problems. Liferay 7.0 is the version that supports ES6.
Steps to reproduce
1. Go to Control Panel -> Configuration -> System Settings
2. Under the Platform section, click on Search
3. Click on the Elasticsearch 6 tab.
This tab and the menu heading should read 6.1, rather than 6.
This is very likely to cause confusion as to what version of Elasticsearch that Liferay 7.1 supports because all of our other documentation states the difference in supported versions. Even our Marketplace apps specify these differences:
Change the tab and heading to read Elasticsearch 6.1.
