Elastic Search UI for the default Liferay 7/DXP installation

Posted on 22/05/2017 by Charalampos Chrysikopoulos

Liferay comes bundles with an integrated Elastic Search server. This answers in port 9200. If you call the url

http://localhost:9200/

you will get the following json.

{
    "name": "Meld",
    "cluster_name": "LiferayElasticsearchCluster",
    "version": {
        "number": "2.2.0",
        "build_hash": "8ff36d139e16f8720f2947ef62c8167a888992fe",
        "build_timestamp": "2016-01-27T13:32:39Z",
        "build_snapshot": false,
        "lucene_version": "5.4.1"
    },
    "tagline": "You Know, for Search"
}

You can also run queries and become an answer, but its rather a bad user experience. A better way is to use some kind of tool, like luke for lucene.

Here ist a tool like this, with the only difference, it is web based and works on its own server. Its elasticsearch-head.

To install it locally follow the instructions described here. Keep in mind, that Liferay 7/DXP uses Elastic Search version 2.2.

The result looks like this:
