Statement of direction: End of support for use of Elasticsearch with Smart IT and BMC MyIT
In past releases, BMC delivered Elasticsearch software as part of the BMC Remedy with Smart IT and BMC MyIT software in order to provide customers with a high-performing full-text search (FTS) service for the Social database (implemented via MongoDB).

To simplify the deployment architecture for Smart IT and BMC MyIT, BMC recommend to use the built-in FTS capabilities of MongoDB 3.0. MongoDB 3.0 is supported with Smart IT 1.3.00 and higher.
BMC plans to stop shipping the Elasticsearch software in any future releases of BMC Remedy with Smart IT after version 1.3.00.
