Kibana 7.13.1 Windows - kibana-encryption-keys

Hi there, from a fresh install of Kibana, I see the following warnings

These are pretty easy to understand, just put an encryption key where it's telling me to. The docs even say to use An arbitrary string of 32 characters or more

The problem I'm having is that it's saying to use the bin/kibana-encryption-keys command. Where is this file? It's certainly not in the bin folder. Thanks!

Hi @KSib - Thanks for reporting this problem. The script is missing in the Windows package. I opened bin/kibana-encryption-keys.bat is missing in the Windows package to track this. Thank you :slight_smile:
