As of early 2014, Oracle has decided to cease standalone sales of Secure Enterprise Search (SES) full use- and connector licenses. SES will continue as an Oracle-internal technology to power search over internal content in WebCenter, Oracle Siebel, PeopleSoft, and Fusion Applications and will be available via restricted use license with these products. Customers who have a full use license will continue to be supported for the lifetime of their SES release.
As part of SES becoming a technology to index Oracle application content only, SES content connectors to third party repositories are being phased out of support. Exceptions are: Microsoft Sharepoint, Lotus Notes, and Documentum Content Server.
