Elasticsearch on App Platform

Hi, Is it possible to integrate Elasticsearch with my app on App Platform? Do I need to create another app with elasticsearch docker image or do I need to install elasticsearch in the app where I have my web app?

Hi there,

What I would personally do is to deploy my Elasticsearch service on a separate Droplet.

That way this gives you more control over the Elasticsearch setup and allows you to manage resources according to your requirements. After setting up Elasticsearch on the Droplet, you can connect your app on the App Platform to the Elasticsearch instance running on the Droplet.

To do this, you’ll need to configure your app with the Droplet’s IP address, port, and any necessary authentication credentials.

Hope that this helps!
