Does Splunk ES need the add-on and app or just the add-on?

Working on a new ES install. Does the ES search head need the app and add-on for each technology or just the add-on? Does it matter if the app and add-on are both installed?

... so you would have to download the ones that you need from Splunkbase instead.

ES doesn't exist without the app so it must be installed.  As part of the installation process, you will be asked to choose the add-ons you need.

I understand that the ES app itself is needed, my question is about the rest of the technologies; firewalls, etc. As I understand it I only need to install the add-on for these on the ES search head and not the app, unless I want to use the app on the ES search head, correct?

I went through the install and I don't remember a step asking me about choosing add-ons. Fresh install of ES 6.4.

Correct.  You only need the TAs and not the apps.
