How to interface Elastisearch

(from github.com/luigigf49)
Hi Marevol,
If I already have an Elasticsearch installation separate from Fess what are the parameters and configuration files of Fess and/or Elastisearch on which I have to work ?
Is there documentation for this topic ?

Many thanks
Luigi

Hi Marevol,
my request is for Windows.
I found some references in your documentation but actually fess.in.bat for 13.3.1 contains these lines :

REM External elasticsearch cluster
REM set FESS_JAVA_OPTS=%FESS_JAVA_OPTS% -Dfess.es.http_address=http://localhost:9200
REM set FESS_JAVA_OPTS=%FESS_JAVA_OPTS% -Dfess.dictionary.path=%ES_HOME%/config/

that are not equal with ‘FESS_PARAMS’ in your documentation.
Furthermore I don’t find ‘configsync.config_path’ in my elasticsearch.yml.
I’m probably making some confusion.
Many thanks
Luigi

Hi Marevol,
like another user I inserted in my fess.in.bat these lines:

set FESS_JAVA_OPTS=%FESS_JAVA_OPTS% -Dfess.es.http_address=http://localhost:9200
set FESS_JAVA_OPTS=%FESS_JAVA_OPTS% -Dfess.dictionary.path=%ES_HOME%/config/
set FESS_JAVA_OPTS=%FESS_JAVA_OPTS% -Dfess.es.transport_addresses=localhost:9300

but when I run fess.bat I obtain this log

_org.lastaflute.di.exception.ContainerInitFailureException: Look! Read the message below.

Thanks. The document will be updated…

fess.es.transport_addresses is not needed in Fess 13.

Elasticsearch plugins might not work.
Please check elasticsearch logs.

Hi Marevol,
I checked elasticsearch logs.
I think I understand that I need some plugins to make FESS talk with elasticsearch installed separately.
I installed Elasticsearch from an msi installer in Windows.
Now I have to install the other plugins needed to make Fess work with my Elasticsearch.
In the documentation I found references especially to the installation of plugins in Unix environment but I’m using Windows.
What are the necessary ones and where can I find them ?

Many thanks
Luigi

English documents will sync up with Japanese ones…

Hi Marevol,
with a little patience and helping me with the Google translator, I was able to find the page that interested me in the Japanese documentation.
I then realized that I had to use elasticsearch-plugin.bat to download and install the 5 plugins that I needed.
I ran fess.bat; the first time without success while re-launching it a second time everything went well.
Thanks for the help and now I will continue with my tests.
Many thanks
Luigi
