Elastic App Search Beta2 Released

We are pleased to announce the second version of the self-managed Elastic App Search beta.

Beta2 adds a set of recent features and enhancements:

  • Adds the Search Settings API. Set Engine level weights and boosts via the API.
  • Java 11 is now supported. App Search now supports Java 8 and Java 11.
  • The UI has been polished, improving contrast and iconography.
  • Performance improvements when indexing and searching documents.

And it fixes a couple minor bugs:

  • Deleting an Engine will now remove its matching Elasticsearch index.
  • You can now re-use Engine names from deleted Engines.
  • Updating API keys will no longer result in a 500 error on occasion.

If you are already running App Search, we recommend upgrading to the new version.

If you haven't checked it out yet, now is a great time to take it for a test drive.
