Introducing OpenSearch for Confluence DC

Hello Community!

We’re making preparations to introduce OpenSearch as an opt-in feature for our customers in a future Confluence Data Center release. With OpenSearch, we’re aiming to externalize indexing processes to support large customers in improving performance for their search- and index-related functions in Confluence DC.

Vendors can now start testing their apps with our early preview, available from version 8.9.

Attention Vendors

As a vendor, if your plugins or apps are using the Lucene API independently, consider moving to the Confluence search v2 API to minimize disruption to customers who take advantage of the OpenSearch engine capabilities.

We will maintain compatibility with our v2 search API as much as possible, so most current integrations should not cause any issues.

If you have any other questions at all, feel free to reply to this post or email me directly on . Looking forward to hearing from you
