Just answered my own question. CA uses elasticsearch-php 2.x which works for ElasticSearch 2.x

@kehh @ThunderTurtles Thanks for your answers! We will be importing a plain hierarchical list then without any extra labels. I found that it is possible to import those as a csv into ca_list_item_labels – you just need to match the labels with the item_id of the list item. This should work for us this one time 😉

Hi, I have a nother question. I am trying to import word documents .docx. Im running on a windows machine and i have got it to work when im using providence-1.5.3 but not when im using the providence-1.6.3 build. I have them installed on the same machine, using the same external_applications.conf file but in the 1.5 version i get nice PDF files but in the 1.6 version i only get white placeholders for the file. The external app conf is:
