Thanks to its JDBC and ODBC interfaces, a broad range of third-party applications can use Elasticsearch’s SQL capabilities. This section lists, in alphabetical order, a number of them and their respective configuration - the list however is by no means comprehensive (feel free to submit a PR to improve it): as long as the app can use the Elasticsearch SQL driver, it can use Elasticsearch SQL.
Each application has its own requirements and license; these are outside the scope of this documentation which covers only the configuration aspect with Elasticsearch SQL.
The support for applications implementing the ODBC 2.x standard and prior is currently limited.
