How to safely disable XPack security features

Hi everyone, I need help.

In the near future, we plan to enable X-PACK security for our ES cluster,both transport and https.

What we need to consider is: once there is a problem in the production environment, we need to disable security of the cluster and roll back program.

Is there any way to disable cluster security without affecting cluster services?

Any suggestion would be helpful

Can you give more context on which problem would make you need to disable security features? This does not make much sense.

If you enable security features, you can disable them, just change the configuration and restart everything. I'm not sure if you can do a rolling restart, probably will need to stop the entire cluster and start again with the features disabled.

Enabling, or disabling, Security requires a full cluster restart and not a rolling one.
