Elasticsearch version 8.0.0edit

The following list are changes in 8.0.0 as compared to 7.17.0, and combines release notes from the 8.0.0-alpha1, -alpha2, -beta1, -rc1 and -rc2 releases.

Also see Breaking changes in 8.0.

Known issuesedit

  • If you installed Elasticsearch from an archive on an aarch64 platform like Linux ARM or macOS M1, the elastic user password and Kibana enrollment token are not generated automatically when starting your node for the first time.

    After the node starts, generate the elastic password with the bin/elasticsearch-reset-password tool:

    bin/elasticsearch-reset-password -u elastic

    Then, create an enrollment token for Kibana with the bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token tool:

    bin/elasticsearch-create-enrollment-token -s kibana
