License Updating in X-pack


(Raman) #1

Where should I use this command to upgrade my licencse?
curl -XPUT -u elastic 'http://<host>:<port>/_xpack/license' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d @license.json

From the terminal or via kibana dev tools.

please note you will be prompted for the elastic user password and please ensure that the license file is correctly placed here: @license.json exactly after the @

In any particular directory or simply open terminal and run?


(Jymit Singh Khondhu) #4

within the exact directory where the downloaded license file resides..

curl: (7) Failed to connect to ip port xxxx: Timed out


(Jymit Singh Khondhu) #6

can you share the full command you just ran?

did you 'http://<host>:<port>/_xpack/license' update the host and port sections here to point to your elasticsearch cluster and the port is it running on?


(Raman) #7

Yes I did.
curl -XPUT -u elastic "xxxxxxxxx/_xpack/license" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d @license.json

host:port?


(Raman) #9

I can not share host and port (company policy).


(Jymit Singh Khondhu) #10

Sure given the xxxxxxxxx I wanted to know if the port was specified, which from your response I gauge it is.

curl Timed out, you need to be in a position where you can talk to elasticsearch from the terminal you reside at.

I did not understand. Can you be more specific?
