  • MacOS X: 10.13 - 10.1x (64 bit only)

First, you’ll need to get Elasticsearch up and running with security features:

  1. Download Elasticsearch 7.5.x and enter the directory.

  2. Edit config/elasticsearch.yml and add: true

  3. Run the binary and start Elasticsearch:

    $ bin/elasticsearch

  4. Generate a random password for the Elastic user:

    $ bin/elasticsearch-setup-passwords auto

The second part is done within Enterprise Search:

  1. Download Enterprise Search 7.5 and enter the directory.

  2. Edit config/enterprise-search.yml and add:

    ent_search.auth.source: standard
    elasticsearch.username: elastic
    elasticsearch.password: [ELASTIC_USER_PASSWORD]
    allow_es_settings_modification: true
  1. Specify a default password and start Enterprise Search:

$ ENT_SEARCH_DEFAULT_PASSWORD=passwordexample bin/enterprise-search

The default username is enterprise_search.

Visit http://localhost:3002 and login using the password you've specified.

And that’s it! Enjoy.
