ES 6.3, alternative to reload_secure_settings

We are on version 6.3. Trying to add a S3 repository to my running elasticsearch cluster. I am using following to add access/secret key for my client to elasticsearch-keystore

bin/elasticsearch-keystore add s3.client.myclient.access_key
bin/elasticsearch-keystore add s3.client.myclient.secret_key

Since 6.3 does not support POST _nodes/reload_secure_settings to reload these secure settings, what are my options to make running elasticsearch cluster recognize these settings?

The only option is to restart the node. The ability to reload security settings on a running node was added in 6.4, it's not possible to reproduce that behaviour on earlier versions.
