Acquia Search’s initial support for Solr 7 will have the following limitations:

  • Support for only Drupal 8 (future, planned support for Drupal 7)
  • No support for custom Solr configurations (future, planned support)
  • Available only in US-East-1 region (future, planned support for other regions)

Moving to Solr 7

Acquia will move Acquia Search subscribers to use Solr 7 in phases, which allows subscribers the most flexibility to prepare for this change (due to module updates and reindexing).

You don’t need to contact Acquia to schedule your move.

Acquia will order the moves based on certain criteria, including a subscriber’s needs for the following items:

  • Drupal 7 support
  • Custom Solr configuration files
  • Support for Solr 7 in different data center locations (such as US-West, EMEA, and APJ)

Acquia will use other criteria to promote move planning, if necessary.
