Error on startup of self-managed app

Hi there,

I downloaded and installed the self-managed app as I want to do some local tests on my business machine. I’m working in a very restricted environment - that’s why I cannot make use of the cloud versions. So, I thougt using the self-managed app will be usable for my tests.

However, I get startup errors due to elastic-search component issues on startup. From catalina.log:

One possible reason could be that ES is not accessible. See root cause

Does this mean, the self-managed app still needs some cloud-access to work properly?

That would be a no-go for my environment… any hints/work-arounds/solutions to this?

Best regards!
