Noteworthy at Compose: A Better Elasticsearch


This is your weekly summary of Compose news for those changes and updates which can make your life easier. In this December 12th 2018 edition, we look at the process of upgrading Elasticsearch.

Upgrading Elasticsearch

This week, we rolled out Elasticsearch version 6.5.2, which includes various updates for version 6.5.x, and is a minor upgrade from version 6.2.2 that we've had on Compose. This release is to keep in sync with Elastic updates. Version 6.5.2 was released last week.

As with all releases on Compose, after 30 days, this Elasticsearch version will become the preferred version and then 30 more days after we'll remove the older version on Compose. With that in mind, here's a guide to helping you to upgrade to this version.

Updating your existing Elasticsearch deployment to version 6.5.x is just a matter of navigating to the Settings view in the Compose console for your deployment. Once you're there, select the new version in the Change Version panel and then click Change Version.

That's it for this week's Noteworthy at Compose. Onwards to next week!
