Question about Marvel Basic license installation


A few months back I installed our first ELK cluster to store and report on our web proxies logs, but back then I didn't have the time to setup the license and since then the trial license has expired.

I've just had the time to setup the basic license today but when I try to access the Marvel app in Kibana I still get the license expired message, even though when I check using the license API the license shows up as active (on all nodes of the cluster) :

curl --noproxy X.X.X.X -X GET http://X.X.X.X:9200/_license
"license" : {
"status" : "active",
"uid" : "eed484e9-47ad-4472-8e0b-359e52c90bc5",
"type" : "basic",
"issue_date" : "2016-01-19T00:00:00.000Z",
"issue_date_in_millis" : 1453161600000,
"expiry_date" : "2017-01-26T23:59:59.999Z",
"expiry_date_in_millis" : 1485475199999,
"max_nodes" : 100,
"issued_to" : "Me",
"issuer" : "Web Form"

Do I have to restart something or should I just wait it out ?


Timely post. I just installed the basic license and it says it's active but I also get the license expired page. Thanks for any help.

I just restarted Kibana (and just that) and that did the trick for me, please let us know if that also solves the problem for you.

Restarting Kibana didn't help.

Correction. The marvel link still goes to the expired page but if I go to the overview page directly it works. Thanks.
