How to install X-pack with "basic license" for ES6.3+? Is the "trial license" mandatory?


#1

Since ES6.3, it is impossible to install or uninstall x-pack. It's built-in to the default distribution.

So, how to set up the installation process in order to reject the "trial" license? Before we were able to set xpack.license.self_generated.type: basic in elasticsearch.yml. But now, there's no elasticsearch.yml since X-pack is installed at the same time as Elasticsearch.

I can't find info on what we need to do anywhere.
