What is the easiest/fastest way to check if a Magento 2 site is on EE or CE?

Preferably via the admin if possible.

You can get this information for any Magento2 install from Magento's official endpoint, by opening this URL in your browser: http://www.example.com/magento_version

That will give data like:
Magento/2.1 (Enterprise)
Magento/2.1 (Community)

cf. http://magento2-demo.nexcess.net/magento_version

  • It doesn't get much easier than that! Thanks.

    This works only if the Magento_Version module is active. Information like version and type of the platform can help hackers in an event of potential vulnerability discovery. This is why some websites deactivate this module on their store and the link redirects to a 404 page. To deactivate the Magento_Version module you can use this command: php bin/magento module:disable Magento_Version

You can detect if a website is running Magento Enterprise Edition by hitting website_base_url/giftcard/customer in your browser. If you get a 404 Page Not Found error then that means they are NOT running MEE (Magento Enterprise Edition). If you get redirected to a login page that means they ARE most likely running MEE.

  • This is accurate on the two sites I tested it on, if nobody comes up with an easier method I'll mark this as accepted.
