Hi @AKCG23 Welcome to the community.

1st: SearchGuard is not an Elastic product nor supported by this community, you will need to ask the developer of that product about your issues.

2nd: Security is Free in the Basic version of Elasticsearch so curious what you are looking for?

OK, I understand SG is a third party product. I am using SG to integrate ELK with other tools
