Description Magnus Enger 2024-01-12 15:17:58 UTC
The documentation around the SearchEngine syspref bsically says "Use following search engine [Zebra|Elasticsearch]", both in the manual and in the syspref interface: 

https://koha-community.org/manual/latest/en/html/administrationpreferences.html#searchengine

But in order for things to work properly there are at least a couple of things that need to be started on the server: 

- koha-es-indexer 
- koha-worker --queue elastic_index

This might be documented somewhere that I am be missing, but I think there should be at least a hint about these things both in the manual and in the syspref interface.
