This year a fork of Elasticsearch was created called OpenSearch. The reasons behind it are varied, and I'm not going to get into that side of things other than to say there are two sides to every story, and it didn't end well.
Our Skpr hosting platform offers a managed AWS Elasticsearch service. As a result of the split, AWS has deprecated Elasticsearch and is migrating all of its managed services to OpenSearch.
This left us in a bit of a difficult situation.
In this blog post, we explain our rationale for choosing to fork Elasticsearch Connector and create a new Search API OpenSearch module.
