After upgrading and running verify processes, there are post-upgrade tasks:
- Re-enable search indexing and reindex search indexes.
- Enable web content view permissions.
Start with search indexes.
Make sure to re-enable search indexing by either removing the
file from your
[Liferay Home]/osgi/configs folder or setting this property in
Then you should reindex Liferay DXP’s search indexes. Don’t just do this blindly, however. By default, Liferay DXP ships with an embedded configuration for Elasticsearch. This configuration works great for demo purposes, but is not supported in production. Make sure to install and configure a standalone Elasticsearch instance to run in production.
Prior to Liferay DXP 7.1, all users could view web content articles by default. Now view permissions are checked by default. Here are options for opening view permissions:
Option 1: Edit view permissions per web content article per role.
Option 2: Open view permissions for all web content articles by going to System Settings → Web Experience → Web Content and deselecting Article view permissions check enabled.
Once you’ve configured search, reindexed your search index, and set web content view permissions, your upgraded system is ready for action! Congratulations!
