Filebeat 7.6.0 oss can't work with AWS Elasticsearch Service because it tries to access xpack


  • AWS ES instance open to world
  • AWS EC2 instance for testing
  • FileBeat OSS 7.6.0 installed from OSS-7.x Debian repo
    on 'filebeat setup -e --template'

    Overwriting ILM policy is disabled. Set setup.ilm.overwrite:true for enabling.

Expected that filebeat will check '"build_flavor" : "oss"' and not try to access /_xpack endpoint
