You can now run OpenSearch version 2.7 in Amazon OpenSearch Service. With OpenSearch 2.7, we have made several improvements to observability, security analytics, index management, and geospatial capabilities in OpenSearch Service.

The new version includes features that were launched as part of open source OpenSearch versions 2.6 and 2.7. Some of the key improvements include introduction of Simple Schema for Observability, providing a unified schema for OpenSearch, ability to add map visualisations to Dashboard panels and ability to filter geospatial data against geospatial field types, support in security analytics for five new log types and the ability to define threat detectors with multiple indexes or index patterns. This release also includes improvements to the Dashboards user interface (UI) such as the ability to manage data streams from the Index Management UI, perform manual rollover and force merges for indices or data streams, and the ability to manage multiple index templates using component templates. The UI improvements also include support for dynamic tenant management, ability to access observability features from the Dashboards main menu, and the ability to add event analytics visualizations to dashboards. Other improvements include support for flat object field type, and support for replication of kNN indices in cross-cluster replication.
