See in nuxeo.conf the property "elasticsearch.override.pageproviders". Uncomment it and pickup some of the mentioned page providers.


You can view the list of the Page Providers in the Admin Center/Elasticsearch/Page Provider tab, the CoreQueryDocumentPageProvider listed in blue can be overridden by Elasticsearch.

Configuring a New Content View (and underlying Page Provider) With Nuxeo Studio

  1. In Studio, on the content view, on the query & form tab, check "Use Elasticsearch index" and Save.

  2. Deploy your Nuxeo Studio project. You are done!
