IssueThe Archer Control Panel requires a server name, and cluster name when configuring ElasticSearch.
The ClusterName is set up when ElasticSearch is installed.
If the ClusterName is incorrect, then ElasticSearch configuration in the Archer Control Panel will not work.
  1. Determine the elastic search server name and/or IP Address.
  2. Open Chrome.
  3. HTTP://ServerName/IP Address from Step#1:9200.   
Example: (http://elastic.archer.local:9200)

  1. Note the ClusterName and Version in the JSON returned.

  "name" : "ELASTIC",
  "cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
  "cluster_uuid" : "oas0Uz3BRmeUJH3oFtK7UQ",
  "version" : {
    "number" : "6.8.3",
    "build_flavor" : "unknown",
    "build_type" : "unknown",
    "build_hash" : "0c48c0e",
    "build_date" : "2019-08-29T19:05:24.312154Z",
    "build_snapshot" : false,
    "lucene_version" : "7.7.0",
    "minimum_wire_compatibility_version" : "5.6.0",
    "minimum_index_compatibility_version" : "5.0.0"
  "tagline" : "You Know, for Search"

  1. Verify that the ElasticSearch version is compatible with RSA Archer. The ElasticSearch plugin in RSA Archer will only work with the documented version of ElasticSearch (as per Supported & Qualified Environments guide).
  2. Enter the cluster name and server name/IP Address into the Archer Control Panel.
  3. Save the changes.
  4. Continue with the ElasticSearch plugin installation and configuration as per Archer documentation.
