Assigning roles to nodes in your cluster


By default, nodes do not have any roles assigned to them. The only exception is the Central Management node, which you specifically promoted to fulfill that role. To assign a role to a node in the cluster, complete the following steps.

  1. On the web interface of your Central Management node, navigate to Basic Settings > Cluster management. This page displays all nodes of a cluster.

  2. Click next to the node that you want to assign a role to. The available roles are displayed.

  3. Select the role that you want to assign to the node. For details on what each role means, see Cluster roles.


    Ensure that each node has a search role and only one search role.

  4. Click Commit.

    The role you assigned is now displayed next to the node, under Roles.

    You can assign roles to your nodes through the REST API, too. For details, see REST API Reference Guide.
