ES Docker Container :: How to restart the ES service?

Hi all,

I have what is a Elasticsearch 101 question for those of us using the ES Docker Container.

I've recently pulled and spun up the latest ES Docker container. (ver 7.3.0) Following the instructions on docker hub, I've brought my ES up in Development Mode.

Question: Once I tweak the config files, how do I restart the ES service? Do I just restart the container? Or is there a more graceful way of doing this from the command line? I've just spent an hour on the online documentation, and don't see the solution.


Yes, restarting the container is the way to restart Elasticsearch. There is no service, just the entry point that runs bin/elasticsearch.

Yes! Thank you, I didn't realize what a newbie question this was. Much appreciated...!
