[Samba] Elasticsearch authentication

Hi Noel, Awen, Ralph,

I am setting up elasticsearch (or actually opensearch) to work with 
fscrawler. I am using the wiki page for spotlight 
as the starting point.

Since my opensearch instance does not live in the same container as the 
Samba fileserver I want to have some security on the connection between 
the two.

The man page for smb.conf has a lot of elasticsearch options but nothing 
for authentication. Further research pointed me to a thread on this list 
between Awen and Ralph: 

Awen has made an MR but it still seems to be under review 

Is there anything that can be done to get this merged? Or is there 
another (better) solution to pass credentials from samba to 
elasticsearch / opensearch?

- Kees.
