Deploying and Configuring Elasticsearch

Elasticsearch is an open source search engine used for the PeopleSoft Search Framework for PeopleSoft 9.2 applications. It is based on Apache Luceneā„¢, a Java-based information retrieval library. Elasticsearch is provided as a deployment package (DPK) that delivers the required Elasticsearch software version, as well as Java-based plug-ins needed for integration with PeopleSoft environments.

In Campus Solutions, Elasticsearch is used in search for classes and courses in PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface, which provides better performance in indexing and results retrieval. When you create the database, make sure you select ES (Elasticsearch).

For information on how to deploy and configure Elasticsearch to support search for classes and courses in PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface, see PeopleTools 8.55.11 or Higher Elasticsearch Home Page on My Oracle Support (Doc ID 2205540.2).

Note: To use search in PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface, make sure you use PeopleTools 8.55.12 or later.

Search results for classes and courses are organized independently of Elasticsearch.
