Current license is non-compliant even after installing licence

I need some serious help with this as I am clueless.
Some day ago my Kibana dashboard was not requiring authentication anymore on my public facing IP.
I went to check logs and discovered that XPAck requires a licence after 30 days.
I have installed the licence on the ElasticSearch server where Kibana connects successfully and even received a confirmation email.
However my Kibana dashboard is still unprotected and I can still see this error:

"type": "security_exception",
"reason": "current license is non-compliant for [security]",
"license.expired.feature": "security"

Is there something else I have to do on Kibana config to re-enable user authentication.

I have checked kibana.yml and nothing related to XPack is disabled.

I don't really know what's going on .

Are you using a basic license? See

Yes I double checked this is what I received on my email confirmation:

Thank you for using the Elastic Stack and registering for your free Basic license! This license expires on March 9, 2018.

The Security functionality is not available on that level, check the link for more.

Ouch I didn't realize I am guessing is under the :Native authentication, encrypted communications ?
