Do i need a paid license to configure user-name password?

I work for a company and at this stage doing very preliminary research on toy data on one single server. Do I need a paid license to configure username/password in elastic-search stack ?
In particular do I need a paid license for running:

  1. In elasticsearch.yml true
  2. Generating passwords via command line
    ./elasticsearch-setup-passwords auto
  3. Adding the kibana username and pass in kibana.yml
    elasticsearch.username: “kibana”
    elasticsearch.password: “generated in the previous step”
  4. Starting ES and Kibana
    Login to kibana with “elastic” username and password
  5. Adding a new user/role via kibana dashboard

That is part of the free Security functionality, so nope :slight_smile:
