What will happen when the license expired?Es cluster can't index any data? Authorization failure?

Hey there, don't worry nothing catastrophic will happen. From the documentation:

Commercial plugins operate with reduced functionality on license expiration:

  • shield
  • Cluster health, cluster stats and indices stats operations are blocked
  • All data operations (read and write) continue to work
  • watcher
  • PUT / GET watch APIs are disabled, DELETE watch API continues to work
  • Watches execute and write to the history
  • The actions of the watches don't execute
  • monitoring
  • The agent will stop collecting cluster and indices metrics
  • The agent will stop automatically cleaning indices older than [xpack.monitoring.history.duration]
  • graph
  • Graph explore APIs are disabled

Hi famoss,

After your license is expired, you should be able to register for the basic license to continue to use your Elasticsearch cluster for dev use (e.g. index any data) and take advantage of the Monitoring feature from X-Pack. Using the basic license, the Security feature will be disabled, however.

Please visit our subscription page for more details and the basic license registration page to apply for one.
