This New release was very much invested in ReadonlyREST Free (our Elasticsearch plugin). We finally delivered the last three of the most desired features:

  1. The “filter” rule, which implements Document Level Security (DLS).
  2. The “fields” rule, which implements Field Level Security (FLS).
  3. The “audit_index_template” settings key, which implements configurable index name and time granularity for audit logs.

The achievement of the above puts our free, and open source ReadonlyREST plugin for Elasticsearch extremely close to the competition in terms of features to the Elastic’s official  X-Pack security module.

Read our Side-by-side feature comparison between X-Pack and ReadonlyREST Enterprise.
