The focus of SuiteCRM 7.11 is to introduce Elasticsearch and Google Calendar Sync.


What is Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is an open-source, broadly-distributable, readily-scalable, enterprise-grade RESTful search engine. It provides a highly flexible solution to centrally store and index your data that can be accessed extremely quickly via its API.

SuiteCRM + Elasticsearch = ?

By including Elasticsearch as a core search engine integration SuiteCRM will now provide users a faster and better scalable way to perform full text searches via Global Search on larger data volumes than before.

This integration also provided SalesAgility the opportunity to re-factor the legacy Search framework and encourage a more modular approach. This enables better integration with other search engines within SuiteCRM.

What do you need to use Elasticsearch with SuiteCRM?

  • You will need an Elasticsearch instance Administrator role on SuiteCRM

  • We have added a new section to our documentation site that helps you set up a very simple Elasticsearch instance here.

Google Calendar

Google Suite integration is a very common request made by the users of SuiteCRM. Thanks to the generosity of one of our talented community members we now have the ability to include bidirectional Google Calendar synchronisation within core SuiteCRM.

Users can authenticate using their Google login and synchronise their Meetings between a Google calendar – these include updates, reminders, and invitees. It also provides a new way to introduce more Google Suite functionality within the core SuiteCRM – so watch this space!

What do you need to use Google Calender sync with SuiteCRM?

  • You will need a Google profile
  • A Google Calendar API Key
    Checkout the Google Calendar section on the documentation site for more information!

Special Thanks to the Community!
