License Issue - Put Request returns null_pointer_exception

(Samuel Larsen Disney) #1

Whenever I try and place my License JSON I receive the following error:
"error": {
"root_cause": [
"type": "null_pointer_exception",
"reason": null
"type": "null_pointer_exception",
"reason": null
"status": 500

This happens if I try the PUT request both at http://localhost:9200/_license/ and http://localhost:9200/_xpack/license/
Elastisearch shows this:

How are you updating the licence? Did you follow these instructions for your OS?

I tried to use the put request on windows. What is 'gc' if I try and run this within cmd or GIT bash I recieve a 'command not found'

After working out it meant powershell (Documentation should say that over just 'windows'), I am still having the same error.

It looks like something isn't quite right with your license file. The error you're seeing indicates that the license is mostly valid, but is missing a key field.

Are you willing to send me your license file in a private message? I'll see if I can understand what's happened.
Alternatively you might try re-downloading the license from our license portal.

I've sent you the license!
