Hi @Adarsh_R_K Welcome to the community!

What version?

How did you install?

Did you try.

curl -k -u elastic:password https://localhost:9200


I am using the 8.7 version
installed through curl command
I put " false" in elasticsearch.yml file and it worked, may I know this is the correct solution.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that

It's a solution if you do not want any security.

If you do want security, start over and follow the documents.
