The below referenced pull request was merged recently into master and kicks in for Elasticsearch 8. Seems like elastic effectively removed the rest plugin capabilities.
We have a POC without RestWrapper but we are not sure that it’ll be enough to make ROR works with ES 8.x.x
But for sure we will make it work Don’t worry
Yes, last resort is always patching like we did with Kibana. We will go crazy lenghts to try to avoid adding any extra installation steps to the user. But the option of patching is there.
@tom I can confirm that we integrated ROR with ES 8.0.0-alpha1 with success.
