Enabling and disabling encryption for communication among search nodes

Enabling encryption for communication among search nodes prevents unauthorized access to the data that is transported across search nodes. You can enable and disable search encryption from the Search landing page.

Before you begin: You must have the pxAccessSearchLP privilege to access the Search landing page.

When you enable or disable encryption, all nodes in the cluster are reinitialized, which might take some time.

Note: Enabling encryption can impact system performance.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure > System > Settings > Search.
