How can I disable or uninstall x-pack in Elasticsearch 7.14

Hi,

we are about to switch from elasticsearch-oss 7.7 to elasticsearch 7.14. Elasticsearch 7.14 contains x-pack by default but we do not intend to use any functionality that the oss version did not contain. Is it possible to disable as much from that functionality as possible? I've collected the following configuration updates:

xpack.ml.enabled: false
xpack.monitoring.collection.enabled: false
xpack.security.enabled: false
xpack.watcher.enabled: false
ingest.geoip.downloader.enabled: false

Are there other config values that can be used to disable xpack features or is there a simpler way to disable all of them?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

You cannot uninstall X-Pack. You can disable aspects of it like you have, if you don't want to use those features, but I don't know if we have a central document that contains all of what you want.

It's a little unusual to not want to use Security for eg, exposing your cluster is not ideal.

Hi Mark,

thanks for the fast reply. You are right... We probably shouldn't disable security :smiley: , even if elastic access is restricted in other ways in our product.

Thanks once more,
Peter
