Normally, ReadonlyREST works like Linux: it is licensed as GPL, and you’re free to use it. But if you want to sell a product that contain its code, you have to publish ALL your source under a GPL compatible license well.
We offer you the possibility to buy a commercially re-licensed copy of the software (dual-licensing). So you will be able to sell your proprietary solution.
Reliably log out by pressing a beautiful pink button that shows your name.
Say goodbye to archaic workarounds: logging out from a HTTP Basic Auth session is tricky, and doesn’t work in all browsers.
ReadonlyREST Embedded for Elasticsearch is a commercially licensed edition of the Free version, therefore includes the following features:
Extensive and detailed documentation is available, covering common use cases and every supported feature.
ReadonlyREST will receive bug fixes and new functionality over time. All upgrades will be free of charge and accessible through this website or the Github project.
If you need support from our developers, you need to open a subscription to a ReadonlyREST Enterprise and/or Embed. Without having one, you will not benefit of priority email support, and will rely solely on the user community and their good will for any issues which might arise.
As a paying customer, you will actively contribute in sustaining the security-focused community that created ReadonlyREST by ensuring the project itself will remain well supported for the future Elasticsearch versions.
This offer will legally allow you create and redistribute your commercial product embedding our technology. This is the “dual-licensing” model therefore, the legal constraints of GPLv3 will not withstand. The commercial license will rule out any legal issues your legal department might raise.
Please see the License FAQ for further detail on licensing including options for distributing ReadonlyREST Enterprise with your own products.
