Thanks for raising this issue.
We have historically supported Amazon’s hosted Elasticsearch Service. In the short term, Amazon OpenSearch is just a fork of Elasticsearch 7.10.2, which is a version we support. Based on statements Amazon has made about API compatibilty, the existing Couchbase Elasticsearch connector should be compatible with all 1.x versions of Amazon’s OpenSearch.
I think it’s safe to say we want Couchbase users to be successful, regardless of which side they pick in this battle.
If we end up having a separate connector for OpenSearch, it will likely be extremely similar to the existing Elasticsearch connector in terms of how it is configured and deployed.
I’ll have a chat with Product Manager @AV25242 and see if/when we can make a stronger statement about OpenSearch support.
