Elasticsearch version 8.12.0edit

Also see Breaking changes in 8.12.

Known issuesedit

  • int8_hnsw vector index format may fail to merge segments and prevent from indexing documents (issue: #104617)

    When using int8_hnsw and the default confidence_interval (or any confidence_interval less than 1.0) and when there are deleted documents in the segments, quantiles may fail to build and prevent merging.

This issue is fixed in 8.12.1.

New featuresedit

Application
  • Enable Connectors API as technical preview #102994
  • [Behavioral Analytics] Analytics collections use Data Stream Lifecycle (DSL) instead of Index Lifecycle Management (ILM) for data retention management. Behavioral analytics has traditionally used ILM to manage data retention. Starting with 8.12.0, this will change. Analytics collections created prior to 8.12.0 will continue to use their existing ILM policies, but new analytics collections will be managed using DSL. #100033
Authentication
  • Patterns support for allowed subjects by the JWT realm #102426
Cluster Coordination
  • Add a node feature join barrier. This prevents nodes from joining clusters that do not have all the features already present in the cluster. This ensures that once a features is supported by all the nodes in a cluster, that feature will never then not be supported in the future. This is the corresponding functionality for the version join barrier, but for features #101609
Data streams
  • Add ability to create a data stream failure store #99134
ES|QL
  • ESQL: emit warnings from single-value functions processing multi-values #102417 (issue: #98743)
  • GEO_POINT and CARTESIAN_POINT type support #102177
Infra/Core
