      We have this already in Azure DevOps Server 2019 Update 1.1, so nothing new 🙁

    Hi Guys ,

    There is an issue with this version when you are going to configure Elastic Search on remote/separate server.
    On configuration of Search service, it throw error on Azure DevOps Server 2020 Admin Console:
    Elasticsearch plugin: ‘AlmSearchPlugin’ with version: ‘’ is not supported. Ensure that your remote Search server has been updated to the latest version prior to configuring Search.

    Can you please guide from where we can find these plugins of ElasticSearch Verison 7.9.2?
    1. AlmsearchPluginZipPath
    2. AlmsearchAuthPluginZipPath
    3. AlmsearchIcuPluginZipPath

      Hi Waseem,
      Azure DevOps Server ships with supported version of Elasticsearch along with required plugins. Please follow the instructions here to setup the supported version of search service on remote machine. Let us know if you face any issues with setting up search with these instructions.

      On Specific ask for Elasticsearch version 7.9.2, I am sorry to inform but Azure DevOps Server does not support any other version of Elasticsearch.

    Any one else had or know the solution to this issue? Currently stuck unable to upgrade as the collection patch fails, so the collection won’t start.
