Elasticsearch

How to use Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is a full-text, distributed NoSQL database for big data. It has amazing options for real-time searching and data analyzing. Shopware recommends the usage of Elasticsearch for large data sets of products. They also support in its search engine for better search results. Here is a sample of a docker setup that adds a new Elasticsearch instance to your Docker network. Just add the container and make sure its on the same network.

docker-compose.yml
version: "3"
services:
shopware:
image: dockware/play:latest
container_name: shopware
ports:
- "80:80"
networks:
- web
elasticsearch:
image: elasticsearch:7.5.2
container_name: elasticsearch
networks:
- web
environment:
- "EA_JAVA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xms512m"
- discovery.type=single-node
networks:
web:
external: false

Now make sure you configure the Elasticsearch instance to be used.

Add the following to your ".env" file:

.env (partial)
SHOPWARE_ES_HOSTS=elasticsearch:9200
SHOPWARE_ES_ENABLED=1
SHOPWARE_ES_INDEXING_ENABLED=1
SHOPWARE_ES_INDEX_PREFIX=abc
