Migrating from Search Guard 53 and before to Search Guard FLX
If you have an existing cluster running Search Guard 53 or earlier, you need to migrate your configuration.
The easiest way to do so is to use the
sgctl command which can automatically convert most configurations. We provide you the necessary instructions to perform the update in the following sections:
Quick Start: If you want to quickly shoot up a new test cluster using a migrated configuration, follow this guide.
Production Cluster: If you are running a production cluster and must achieve a migration without an outage, you have to follow a specific update sequence.
For some advanced configurations, automatic conversion might be not available.
Feature Map: For reference, we provide you an overview which describes how the classic authentication features map to the new authentication features.
