We are operating an Elastic stack in an environment that is intentionally unable to access the outside world/internet.
When we browse to our Kibana dashboards, we see that our browsers are trying to fetch
/api/fleet/epm/packages?experimental=true, which times out after a while with errors like this:
"Error connecting to package registry: request to https://epr.elastic.co/search?experimental=true&kibana.version=7.13.1 failed, reason: connect ENETUNREACH 188.8.131.52:443"
It seems that every time the browser calls the
/api/fleet/epm/packages?experimental=true endpoint the server tries to fetch something from
epr.elastic.co which will never work in our environment.
Is there any way to disable those checks?
It is visually annoying and will (by design) never succeed
