Post expiry of X-PACK license


(Super Kingg) #1

Hi,

Could you please let me know if the security feature will be disabled once the trial license for 30 days expires ?
What I read from the documentation is that "Commercial plugins operate with reduced functionality on license expiration:

  • shield "

Does this mean that I will NOT be able to login to the Kibana console post the 30 day trial period ?

I am interested in only securing access to the Kibana and not in the monitoring stuff etc

Thanks in Advance

Hi,

Thanks for the pointer. It says

" Commercial plugins operate with reduced functionality on license expiration: - security"

Could you please explain what does reduced functionality mean ? - Will the login to the Kibana console itself will be disabled ?

It explains what happens on the page;

Once the license expires, calls to the cluster health, cluster stats, and index stats APIs fail with a security_exception and return a 403 HTTP status code.

That's all it restricts.
