Under the known issues, there are lots of references to issues in SOLR 6 but it is my understanding that 7.3+ is based on SOLR 8.

Are these issues still relevant to 7.4.0 (if based on SOLR 8)?


Hi @jeffml,

Thanks for pointing this out. I will update the release notes to clarify that those Known Issues only apply to Server versions based on SOLR 6.



On-prem customers on version 6.x have reported issues upgrading to 7.4.0. We are working to resolve the issue in EDR Server 7.4.1 and recommend that customers currently on 6.x DO NOT attempt to upgrade to 7.4.0.

Instead, please wait to upgrade to version 7.4.1, which will be released very soon.

Please see this announcement and this Knowledge Base article for more details.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
