WARNING: Version 6.1 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
- The mapper attachments plugin has been deprecated in elasticsearch 5.0 and is now removed. You can use ingest attachment plugin instead.
- The bucket an s3 repository is configured with will no longer be created automatically. It must exist before the s3 repository is created.
- Support for specifying s3 credentials through environment variables and
system properties has been removed. Use the
elasticsearch-keystoretool to securely store the credentials.
- Specifying region has been removed. This includes the settings

- Specifying s3 signer type has been removed, including
- Global repositories settings have been removed. This includes
repositories.s3.path_style_access. Instead, these settings should be set directly in the settings per repository. See S3 Repository settings.

Previously, plugins could construct an
Environment instance from
discover the path to plugin-specific config files. This will no longer work in
all situations as the
Settings object does not carry the necessary information

config path should have a single constructor that accepts a pair of
Path instances, and construct an
Environment using the corresponding
