I am trying to use Basic Authentication when HTTPS is enabled. I am using default "native" realm. Is Basic Authentication not supported when HTTPS is enabled and realm is "native"?
I successfully used API Key and but could NOT use Token because I think the free version does not support generating token. Another interesting thing is, I think Kibana uses https and basic authentication but it fails for me when I use a high level REST API Java client.
I just added following xpack properties to my elasticsearch.yml.
xpack.security.enabled: true xpack.security.http.ssl.enabled: true xpack.security.http.ssl.keystore.path: elasticsearch/http.p12 xpack.security.http.ssl.truststore.path: elasticsearch/http.p12
Please note, this is my dev environment and I am trying to keep the configuration changes to a minimum to begin with. I am using all defaults including the user for basic authentication i.e. "elastic". Also, my application works fine with basic authentication but HTTPS disabled.
Any clues? Thank you in advance.
