PeopleSoft integration with Elasticsearch depends on the version of Elasticsearch that is distributed with PeopleTools. PeopleSoft also provides PeopleSoft-specific customizations. PeopleSoft currently provides a version of Elasticsearch 2.3.2 with PeopleSoft products. This version of Elasticsearch is distributed to customers through our Deployment Packages (DPKs). Customers have noted that Elastic, the company that provides Elasticsearch, has announced that version 2.3.2 will reach end of life on September 30, 2017. It is important for customers to know that Oracle/PeopleSoft will continue to support that version of Elasticsearch, which we provide, beyond that date. Customers will receive any fixes through our DPKs, and they should not attempt to get support or updates from Elastic.
In addition, we are currently working on certifying the latest version of Elasticsearch, and when that is complete, it will be available in our Elasticsearch Deployment Packages. Our strategy is to support future versions of Elasticsearch when they are available after testing and certification.
