Using the Elasticsearch Add-in

Elasticsearch is a powerful open source search and analytics engine, and it’s easy to add to your application as an add-in.

Add Elasticearch

To add Elasticsearch to your application, access the add-ins menu, click Elasticsearch and choose the size of your new server. This adds three environment variables to your application: ELASTICSEARCH_ADDRESS_INT, ELASTICSEARCH_ADDRESS_EXT and ELASTICSEARCH_ADDRESS, which you can use to connect to your Elasticsearch instance.


For docker applications this will be added to the host not as a container.
