Why does the AWX HTTP user-agent string contain "(open)"?

I’m toying writing some slides about AWX Webhook notifications, and notice the transmitted user-agent string contains:

User-Agent: AWX 23.8.1 (open)

I know curiousity killed the cow, but what does the “open” mean? :slight_smile:

I’d guess it’s based on the fact that redhat includes the license there :slight_smile: But go ahead and PR it to something better


Yeah, it’s definitely related to the licensing. You can actually trick AWX into running in AAP mode, even though the UI and other stuff will be completely broken, by creating an empty license file where the official one would get installed. I imagine the header would change to reflect that mode switch.
