Improve Backing-up and Search Tunings articles and cover limitations when it comes to reindexing and restoring, or changing the operation mode

    Details

      Description

      Things we should better cover:

      • There are no database data for Search Tunings => liferay-<companyId>-search-tuning-* indexes are the primary storage
      • Search Tuning entries (synonyms and result rankings) are not preserved when switching from Embedded/Sidecar to Remote/Production or when migrating to a new Elasticsearch cluster (e.g. when moving to a new major version of ES)-> Existing documents must be restored manually ==> Do not use Search Tunings when Elasticsearch is configured to run in development mode (Embedded/Sidecar)
      • Reindex does not reindex Result Ranking entries, though they are not deleted either
      • Synonym entries are preserved across subsequent reindexes as long as the Elasticsearch cluster remains the same
      • Search Tuning modules (or DXP) must be restarted when switching to Remote/Production mode otherwise there will be index_not_found exceptions when visiting RR or SS on the Control Panel.
      • Always back-up all Liferay indexes -> List OOTB indexes
