Elastic Enterprise Search 7.16: Adaptive relevance and Kibana UI


The 7.16 release of Elastic Enterprise Search features curations powered by adaptive relevance, the general availability (GA) of the unified management interface in Kibana, and a Google Cloud Firestore extension. These new features, plus a host of others, give users more power and flexibility than ever to create, tune, and manage their search experience:

  • Get automatic recommendations for suggested results based on what real users are searching for
  • Enjoy a single interface to manage search experiences, right next to all of the other tools inside Kibana
  • Use the new Google Cloud Firestore extension to build premium search experiences with Elastic App Search
  • Take advantage of more detailed performance monitoring, additional authentication mechanisms, and new API endpoints

Elastic Enterprise Search is available now on Elastic Cloud — the only hosted Elasticsearch offering to include all of the new features in this latest release. You can also download the Elastic Stack and our cloud orchestration products, Elastic Cloud Enterprise and Elastic Cloud for Kubernetes, for a self-managed experience.

Harness the power of adaptive relevance

At the core of an exceptional search experience is ensuring that users receive the best results for their query. While App Search has had the ability to configure curations manually for some time, users can now leverage curations powered by a new beta feature — adaptive relevance. It uses real user data to make curation recommendations. As your users search, adaptive relevance works behind the scenes to make valuable insights actionable based on users’ interactions with search results. Adaptive relevance provides automated recommendations for tuning results to better fit the needs of users.


Enjoy a unified UI in Kibana

App Search and Workplace Search features are now conveniently accessible within Kibana from a single management interface. This intuitive UI is now generally available with 7.16. Never lose your way with consistent, cross-platform navigation as you explore all that Elastic offers in Kibana, our free, powerful analytics platform that lets you visualize your search data and navigate the Elastic Stack.
