This week on the podcast we welcome back Wayne Fuller to talk about Elasticsearch. Wayne gives an excellent introduction into using Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft, some lesson’s learned from his testing, and highlights the benefits of switching to the new search tool.
One quick note – after recording, Wayne got clarification that you cannot cut over to Elasticsearch by index, only by user. We’ll talk with Wayne in an upcoming episode again about that change so everybody has accurate information. -dan

At OpenWorld, Oracle announced that PeopleTools 8.55 will support Elasticsearch with the Search Framework. Elasticsearch will most likely be the long-term replacement for SES. The only timeframe announced is 2016 for Elasticsearch support, so it won’t be available when PeopleTools 8.55 is released. So, don’t shut down that SES server yet! Elasticsearch is an open source search software. You can download Elasticsearch now and start playing with it today. For more info on PeopleTools 8.55 and discussion on Elasticsearch, check out The PeopleSoft Administrator Podcast episode 2.
Update – May 1, 2015 Check out Episode 25 of The PeopleSoft Administrator Podcast to learn more about Elasticsearch.
