      Installing Elasticsearch

      Liferay DXP uses Elasticsearch to index its content. By default, Liferay DXP uses Elasticsearch as an embedded service. It works, but this is not a supported configuration for a production server. Feel free to use it while you're testing or developing, but when you're ready to put your site in production, you'll need to run Elasticsearch as a standalone process. This is better anyway, because it frees you to design your infrastructure the way you want it. If you've got hardware or a VM to spare, you can separate your search infrastructure from Liferay DXP and reap some performance gains by putting search on a separate box. If you're more budget-conscious, you can still increase performance by running Elasticsearch in a separate, individually tunable JVM on the same box.
      Installing Elasticsearch for Liferay DXP is pretty easy and takes only six steps:
      *****I would add one extra step, related to the installation of the Liferay plugins for Elasticsearch (monitoring, security, etc.)****** # Find the version of Elasticsearch that's embedded in the version of Liferay DXP you have, and then download that version from Elastic'swebsite. # Install Elasticsearch by extracting its archive to the system where you want it to run.

      1. Install some required Elasticsearch plugins.
      2. Name your Elasticsearch cluster.
      3. Configure Liferay DXP to connect to your Elasticsearch cluster.
      4. Restart Liferay DXP and reindex your search and spell check indexes.|
      5. Configure Liferay DXP to connect to your Elasticsearch cluster.
      1. Restart Liferay DXP and reindex your search and spell check indexes.
