Plugins and upgrading to ElasticSearch 5.02

(Lee Dickinson) #1

If you use Elasticsearch plugins, be very careful about compatibility.

I found this out to my cost when moving from ES5.01->ES5.02 ... both analysis-icu and analysis-phonetic report "

rg.elasticsearch.bootstrap.StartupException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Plugin [analysis-icu] is incompatible with Elasticsearch [5.0.2]. Was designed for version [5.0.1]"

Would'nt have expected this for such a minor revision ... so user beware. Eventually rolled back to 5.01 - Disappointing

all you need to do is to upgrade those plugins as well. They are provided with every release. No need for rolling back.

rolled forward to ES5.02, uninstalled and reinstalled It's done the trick! - working now.
