Activating Liferay Enterprise Search
Starting with Liferay DXP 7.4, the Liferay Enterprise Search (LES) applications are included with all Liferay DXP bundles and Docker containers. To begin using LES, purchase an LES Add-On Subscription: start by contacting a Liferay sales representative or visit https://www.liferay.com/contact-sales.
LES is enabled by default and requires no additional installation steps. However, a LES add-on subscription must be purchased to receive official Liferay Support and additional benefits. Maintenance and updates to LES applications are delivered through Fix Pack and Service Pack releases. If you do not have a subscription to LES, access can be disabled completely by following these steps described below.
LES Search Experiences was added to the DXP bundle in Liferay DXP 7.4 Update 5. Search Experiences will be made available on Liferay DXP 7.3 via the Customer Portal as an add-on application.
