Getting license error when trying to view Monitoring after upgrade to 6.3.1

I just upgraded a test cluster to 6.3.1 (Kibana and Elasticsearch). I was trying to verify the health of the cluster by going to the Monitoring section of Kibana (which was working on the previous Basic license). But now it says:

Your trial license has expired

I only have the following xpack settings in Kibana and Elasticsearch: false false
xpack.graph.enabled: false

The license appears to be set:

andy@kibana:~$ curl -X GET "localhost:9200/_xpack/license"
  "license" : {
    "status" : "active",
    "uid" : "9ed658fb-e77d-490a-a734-00b93195ecb7",
    "type" : "basic",
    "issue_date" : "2018-07-06T00:19:55.131Z",
    "issue_date_in_millis" : 1530836395131,
    "max_nodes" : 1000,
    "issued_to" : "logs",
    "issuer" : "elasticsearch",
    "start_date_in_millis" : -1

Should the Monitoring section be available with the new 6.3 Basic licensing?


From which version did you upgrade to 6.3.1? Monitoring is definitely available for a single cluster with basic licensing.

If you could also let us know which distribution you are using - I will try to reproduce it in my local.


Actually, I may have just needed to wait a while for things to settle. I just checked it again and it is working as designed. Thanks for the reply.
