Search guard admin vs search guard

Hi team,

From this page, I can see 2 downloads

  1. Search Guard
  2. Search Guard Admin

What’s the difference between the above two?
I want to use the community edition. So which one from the above I have to use?


The Search Guard is the Elasticsearch security plugin.

The Search Guard Admin (standalone) package is useful if you want to apply changes to your cluster from a remote machine. You do not need to ssh to a node and execute sgadmin from there. You can also “install” (unzip) the standalone version on your local machine, connect to a remote cluster, and make changes.

Download Search Guard to install the plugin in Elasticsearch.
