Elasticsearch 6.8.23 is installed on the default port 9200 and doesn’t require any credentials. However, it is not running by default. To use this version of Elasticsearch during your builds, start the service with this command:

sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch start

Other Versions

If you need to install a different version or use a custom configuration, please see this script.

For example if you want to install 7.17.9, set that version and port number as environment variables in your project or add this in the Setup Commands:


Java 11 is set by default, but if the Elasticsearch version being used needs a specific Java version be sure to set it in your Setup Commands.

Finally add this command to your Setup Commands and the script will automatically be called at build time. Note, this script automatically starts the Elasticsearch service. Do not call the sudo command mentioned above, otherwise there will be two instances of Elasticsearch running in the build.
