Looking at the opensitro elasticsearch docker images build steps -
I notice the dockerfile installs the elasticsearch-oss tar and then the standalone opendistro plugins are installed.
Instead, if the
opendistroforelasticsearch rpm was installed directly in the image, then all the plugins would be already part of it. Similar case with kibana docker image.
Wanting to know if there are any potential benefits of building docker images with elasticsearch tar & standalone plugins? Is there a specific reason for going with that approach? Any inputs would be appreciated.
