It is time to say goodbye: This version of Elastic Cloud Enterprise has reached end-of-life (EOL) and is no longer supported.
The documentation for this version is no longer being maintained. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
App Search and Enterprise Search support a read-only mode, which allows a product operator to disable all writes from the application to the underlying Elasticsearch instance while keeping the application running and handling search requests. This mode could be used to perform maintenance on a deployment, create a consistent snapshot of the deployment’s data, or to perform an product upgrade without downtime.
For more information, see read-only mode in the App Search documentation.
