Monitoring view in Kibana with OSS version

I use OSS version of Elasticsearch 6.8.0 + Kibana and I'm not able to turn on monitoring features. This page - - says that "Starting with version 6.3, all of the free X-Pack features (monitoring, Search Profiler, Grok Debugger, zoom levels in Elastic Maps Service, dedicated APM UIs, and more) ship with the default distributions of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash."

So I would expect that since XPack is opensource and I'm using opensource version of Elasticsearch I'm able to use monitoring in Kibana.

When I add "xpack.monitoring.collection.enabled: true" to "elasticsearch.yml" it fails to start complaining that it does not know that setting. So how is it with OSS version and monitoring?

Monitoring requires the default distribution and is not part of OSS.
