Apologies...Wow I stand moderately corrected
Reverting to a Basic license should re-renable That functionality correct
And From our own current docs here
If your license expires, your subscription level reverts to Basic and you will no longer be able to use Platinum or Enterprise features.
So I am confused .... That would imply that all basic functionality shall work. No mention of basic management functions being blocked.
but here for 7.x
I do see this
Access to the cluster health and stats APIs is critical for monitoring and managing an Elasticsearch cluster.
Cluster health, cluster stats, and indices stats operations are blocked.
Once the license expires, calls to the cluster health, cluster stats, and index stats APIs fail with a
security_exception and return a 403 HTTP status code.
Somehow I have never seen that before...
Perhaps in 7.x You have to manually revert to a basic license before you can use those APIs?
Would reverting to a basic license restore?
Seems inconsistent / odd to block listing indices ...
What version are you on?
And HUH interesting I just tested this...
I have a 8.9 cluster that is getting near EO license and in the logs I see so that same behavior seems to be in 8.x even though it is not mentioned in the docs...
If you have a new license, please update it. Otherwise, please reach out to
# your support contact.
# Commercial plugins operate with reduced functionality on license expiration:
# - security
# - Cluster health, cluster stats and indices stats operations are blocked
# - All data operations (read and write) continue to work
# - watcher
So the question stands ...
Does reverting to a Basic license re-enable the health, cluster stats and indices stats operations when basic security (Free) is enabled?
