D17384 has just landed, making search configuration much more powerful. Just filing this to keep track of followups.
[ ] Write an "Upgrading: ..." guidance task with narrow instructions for installs that are upgrading.
[ ] Do we need to add an indexing activity (T11932) for installs with ElasticSearch?
[ ] We should more clearly detail exactly which versions of ElasticSearch are supported (for example, is ElasticSearch <2 no longer supported)? From T9893 it seems like we may //only// have supported ElasticSearch <2 before, so are the two regions of support totally nonoverlapping and all ElasticSearch users will need to upgrade?
[ ] Documentation should provide stronger guidance toward MySQL and away from Elastic for the vast majority of installs, because we've historically seen users choosing Elastic when they aren't actually trying to solve any specific problem.
[ ] When users search for fulltext results in Maniphest and hit too many documents, the current behavior is approximately silent failure (see T12443). D17384 has also lowered the ceiling for ElasticSearch, although previous changes lowered it for MySQL search. We should not fail silently, and ideally should build toward T12003.
[ ] D17384 added a new "keywords" field, but MySQL does not search it (I think?). The behavior should be as consistent across MySQL and Elastic as we can make it. Likely cleaner is giving "Project" objects a body, with "slugs" and "description" separated by newlines?
[ ] `PhabricatorSearchEngineTestCase` is now pointless and only detects local misconfigurations.
[ ] It would be nice to build a practical test suite instead, where we put specific documents into the index and then search for them. The upstream test could run against MySQL, and some `bin/search test` could run against a configured engine like ElasticSearch. This would make it easier to make sure that behavior was as uniform as possible across engine implementations.
[ ] `PhabricatorSearchService` throws an untranslated exception.
[ ] When a search cluster is down, we probably don't degrade with much grace (unhandled exception)?
[x] Does every assigned task now match "user" in ElasticSearch?
[x] `PhabricatorElasticFulltextStorageEngine` has a `json_encode()` which should be `phutil_json_encode()`.
[X] Has T8602 been resolved? (Presuming yes.)
