Current license is non-compliant for [security]


(Vyzikidis Stefanos) #1

Hi all,

i have a test Elasticsearch/Kibana installation and on Console giving the command cluster/health returns the following

{
  "error": {
    "root_cause": [
      {
        "type": "security_exception",
        "reason": "current license is non-compliant for [security]",
        "license.expired.feature": "security"
      }
    ],
    "type": "security_exception",
    "reason": "current license is non-compliant for [security]",
    "license.expired.feature": "security"
  },
  "status": 403
}

I have searched on forums and the most obvious answer is that the license of Xpack is expired. Is it possible to disable Xpack ?

Thanks

Hi Stefanos,

You can explicitly disable X-Pack security if you wish to do so.

If it's expired then just apply a free Basic license. That'll disable security and still give you access to Monitoring etc.

Just inserted the
xpack.security.enabled: false

in elasticsearch.yml and cluster/health doesn't report any error. Thanks!
