Standalone securityadmin.sh tool

Hello,

is it possible to run the securityadmin tool standalone - without intallation of the hole opendistroforelasticsearch installation.

For a central administration of multiple instances it would be useful to have only this tool installed on a “management host” where also the admin certificate is located.

Greetings,

Martin

I’ve found that in the maven artifacts for the opendistro_security plugin, there is a zip file that contains a standalone securityadmin tool – https://search.maven.org/artifact/com.amazon.opendistroforelasticsearch/opendistro_security/0.9.0.0/jar

This isn’t advertised in the docs, but I’ve downloaded it and it looks like it just works, however it looks to be omitted from the docs.
Could one of the repository owners chip in & say if using this standalone tool is supported?
