Reports
~~~~~~~~~~
|reports| All statistics and user reports were combined into the new :ref:`"Reports" <reports>` section in the *Administration* area. Additional reports were created to report over actions by people in more detail.
These new reports require that Elasticsearch (minimum is version 5.5) is installed and in use as they can gather a lot of data. In order not to slow down the site, Elasticsearch is used to index report events and make the data available quickly.

Elasticsearch upgrade
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
|elasticsearch| Elasticsearch was upgraded to version 5.5. This allows Mahara to use a much more modern version of Elasticsearch for fulltext searches and logging of events for the reporting section.
If you already used Elasticsearch with your site and want to upgrade, please read the `upgrade information <https://git.mahara.org/mahara/mahara/blob/17.10_STABLE/htdocs/search/elasticsearch/upgrade_elasticsearch.readme>`_.
