About build information we get when running curl request to elasticsearch service

I ran curl request to elasticsearch service and I got information related to build as follow:
"build_hash" : "757314695655ea9a1dc2fecd26d1a43856725e65",
"build_date" : "2020-06-14T19:35:50.234439Z",
"build_snapshot" : false

Please tell what does this information imply and what is its impact on the cluster.
Thanks in advance.

It does not imply anything.

Thanks for the response. Does it have any effect on the cluster?

No it does not.

We have used this in the past to identify differences between the builds that we release and builds that people have done themselves (with their own code changes).
It helps us identify if something is not what we consider standard.

It's purely an identifier though.

Thank you for the information.
