About free or liciensed ver

need only a info about free version of x-pack I install it only to get user auth on kibana still active the option after the 30 days of evalutate version?

Glad to hear you're using X-Pack Security! Our licensing is a bit lenient when the license expires - we don't want to take down production services due to a missed license upgrade, or "fail open" and potentially expose sensitive data to the world, so we don't immediately disable security functionality when the license expires. With an expired license, you may not use this in production and to make sure this is clear, when the license expires, we disable all cluster health-related APIs. This way, the admin will quickly learn that the license has expired, without immediately disabling end-user access to the cluster.

If you'd like to learn more about what's included in a Gold or Platinum license, you can take a look at our subscriptions page. Feel free to reach out to our team at info @elastic.co or direct message me, and I can connect you with the right folks to discuss.
