Found this text in security/securityconfig/elasticsearch.yml.example:
# Enable or disable the Open Distro Security enterprise modules # By default enterprise modules are enabled. If you use any of the modules in production you need # to obtain a license. If you want to use the free Community Edition, you can switch # all enterprise features off by setting the following key to false opendistro_security.enterprise_modules_enabled: true
This seems to indicate that the “Open Distro” Elasticsearch does (or will have) some sort of tiered licensing.
I’d appreciate it if someone could clarify what is planned for “enterprise modules”.
