Configuring index host nodes from the user interface

Updated on July 8, 2022
Applicable to deployments with embedded Elasticsearch.

In a multinode cluster system, the index files required for search can be hosted on one or more nodes. To add or remove an index host node interactively, complete the following steps.

Before you begin: To access the Search landing page, you must have the pxAccessSearchLP privilege, which is included in the PegaRULES:SysAdm4 role.
Note: You cannot edit index host nodes on Cloud deployements.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureSystemSettingsSearch.
  2. In the Settings section, click Add node below the list of nodes to add a node.
  3. Enter the following information for a new index node:
    Host Node ID
    The ID of a node on which the search index files will be stored. You can look up valid node IDs on the ConfigureSystemOperationsCluster Management page.
    File Directory
    The absolute file path to the directory on the node in which the search index files will be stored. If no value is specified, Pega Platform writes index files to a subdirectory of the PegaRULES temporary directory PegaSearchIndex.
  4. Click Save Settings.
  5. If you add a host node, wait until the new node is displayed with Node Status equal to online before configuring additional nodes. Click Refresh to refresh the display.
