Change the Elasticsearch Client

As of version 2.3.6, Magento Commerce supports Elasticsearch 7.x, with a preference for 7.6.x. Support for Elasticsearch 6.x has been deprecated, but it can still be used. Both Elasticsearch 2.x and 5.x have reached end-of-life and are no longer supported.

Change the Elasticsearch Client version

If you need to work with Elasticsearch 7.1.x, run the following command:

1
composer require "elasticsearch/elasticsearch:~7.1"

To work with Elasticsearch 6.8.x, run the following command:

1
composer require "elasticsearch/elasticsearch:~6.8"

Then configure Elasticsearch within Magento Admin.
