There is indeed a difference between a generic ‘run handler’ in the client,
and the Chef Reporting addon that’s been available in Hosted and Enterprise
Chef for some time now, and is a premium addon for Chef Server 12. Any
tools you’ve built that hook into the run handler feature of the client
will continue to work.
Chef Reporting is simply type of run handler that’s built into chef-client
and only sends data to the server when talking to a server that supports it
(e.g. Hosted and Enterprise Chef or Chef 12 with the Reporting addon).
Hope that helps,

Fairly straightforward question: Will tools that I’ve built around the
open-source ‘run handler’ hooks continue to work in Chef 12, with the
release of the premium reporting feature? Or is the reporting tool a
different tool overall?
In general, I’m having a hard time finding documentation about where
things have moved from ‘open source’ to ‘premium’ in clear and specific
terms (for example, the webui - what else?).
