At Elastic, we are passionate about our products, its users, and the community. You are important to us, so we feel it is only right to ensure we have the agreement of our contributors to use their work, whether it be code or documentation.
Therefore, we are asking all contributors to sign a contributor license agreement (CLA). CLAs are generally common and accepted in most Open Source software projects. We all wish for Elasticsearch to be used and distributed as widely as possible, and for its users to be confident about the origins and continuing existence of the code. The CLA help us achieve that goal.
The CLA is a license agreement, which enables Elastic to distribute your code without restriction. It doesn't require you to assign to us any copyright you have, the ownership of which remains in full with you. You cannot withdraw permission for its use at a later date.
The next step is for you to select the appropriate agreement below, read the terms, and once comfortable, complete the electronic signature. After this, you will receive a copy of the agreement by email, and we can start to use your valued contribution within the different Elasticsearch projects.
Please select the appropriate description that reflects why you are signing up:
