Elasticsearch version 6.7.0edit

Also see Breaking changes in 6.7.

Known issuesedit

A new docker build_type value was introduced in 6.7.0 for Docker images, which caused two problems:

  • If you perform a rolling upgrade to 6.7.0 on nodes that are running the official Docker container, they cannot rejoin the cluster. Upgrade to 6.7.1 instead or perform a full cluster restart upgrade. (issue: #40784)
  • If you have a 6.6 or earlier Java High Level REST client, it cannot understand the new build_type value. For example, it cannot read main responses on / from a cluster that’s running 6.7.0. Upgrade your client to 6.7.0 or later. (issue: #40511)

    Features/ILM
    If an index is configured with an index.lifecycle.name that refers to a policy that does not exist, when index lifecycle management is stopped, index lifecycle management’s status will remain as STOPPING until all policies that do not exist are removed from any indices by using the Remove Policy API. (issue: #40824)
