Elastic Product End of Life Dates

We love all our products, but sometimes we must say goodbye to a release so that we can continue moving forward on future development and innovation. Elastic’s Support Services Policy defines how long a given release is maintained and supported. Please see the Elastic Support Services Policy and the Support Matrix for more information. 

The Support Services Policy effective from October 1, 2022 applies to the following:

  1. For Subscriptions beginning prior to October 1, 2022, the following Software versions:
    1. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, Beats, Elasticsearch-Hadoop, APM server, and Elastic Enterprise Search version 8.0.0 and later,
    2. Elastic Cloud Enterprise version 3.0.0 and later,
    3. Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes version 2.0.0 and later, 
    4. APM Go Agent version 2.0.0 and later, APM Java Agent version 1.0.0 and later, APM .NET Agent version 1.0.0 and later, APM Node.js Agent version 3.0.0 and later, APM Python Agent version 6.0.0 and later, APM Ruby Agent version 4.0.0 and later, APM Javascript RUM Agent version 5.0.0 and later, and 
  2. For new Subscriptions or renewals beginning on or after October 1, 2022, all Software versions.

For Subscriptions beginning prior to October 1, 2022, the previous Support Services Policy continues to apply to all earlier Software versions than those specified in item 1 above.
